A Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML)-based interactive three dimensional museum on the Web is designed and implemented. Users may walk through a 3D representation of the whole museum, viewing its collections, and seeing objects in 3D together with information about them. To allow all of these, we have designed a set of interactive dynamic Web pages, using a client-server platform that delivers the information required by the user, both 3D data of the objects and texts and 2D information. All this information is stored in a database to enable easier access and management.
