The international conference about museums and the web!

In its fourth year, Museums and the Web 2000 was the place to review the state of the web in arts and heritage. Over 150 speakers from around the world presented their ideas in sessions and panels that explored theory and practice at both basic and advanced levels. Pre-conference workshops provided in-depth study of methods and issues. Exhibits featured hot tools, new techniques and services to help you get things done.
