Design and Implementation of a Digital Museum

Abstract

The museum is a feature of every nation. This feature is most prominent in tourist centers. Every state in the nation has museums, and Abia state cannot be an exception. People enjoy using the museum because of the numerous advantages it offers.

If not for anything, it enlightens people. But then the museum comes with responsibility namely management. Items in the museum are numerous; the visitors of the museum frequently take items; the museum adds new items to the collection, sometimes one may need to check whether a particular item is in the museum; will he search all the items there? How will the museum manager manage all the items? How will the numerous visitors in the museum be administered?

This project design and implementation of a 3D digital museum are designed to solve the above issues. The system helps the museum manager to manage all the items in the museum. It enables faster retrieval of information.

It allows the user to walk around the museum digitally without having to be at the physical location of the museum. The database is organized in such a way that one can search by year, origin, item title, etc. structure system analysis and design were used to design this project.

INTRODUCTION

A museum is an institution that cares for (conserves) a collection of artifacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary.

Most large museums are located in major cities throughout the world and more local ones exist in smaller cities, towns and even the countryside. Museums have varying aims, ranging from serving researchers and specialists to serving the general public.

The continuing acceleration in the digitization of information, combined with the increasing capacity of digital information storage, is causing the traditional model of museums (i.e. as static “collections of collections” of three-dimensional specimens and artifacts) to expand to include virtual exhibits and high-resolution images of their collections for perusal, study, and exploration from any place with Internet.

The city with the largest number of museums is Mexico City with over 128 museums. According to The World Museum Community, there are more than 55,000 museums in 202 countries.
