There are many good reasons to visit museums. Attending an event or an exhibition are just two of these. Museums "show" and "stage", they "educate" and "stimulate". But there is much more to museums than these: museums are places of safekeeping and research. These are two sides of a museum that are not often visible, yet they build the very core of a museum's visibility. It is the museum objects that are displayed, stored and studied. They are at the center of (almost) all work done in a museum. However, not all of objects kept in a museum can be showcased at once. Much has to remain in storage, hidden from the visitors.

On this website museums showcase their objects, in current exhibits and beyond. More than what can be shown in a museum's viewing space.

A random selection of objects can be found on the right. Click on them to learn more. More objects of interest can be found by using the search bar on the left.

Logos, Logos, Logos

Anfang dieser Woche haben wir, wie einige Leser schon gesehen haben könnten, die Logos der internationalen Instanzen von museum-digital und das Logo, das im Handbuch angezeigt wird angepasst.

Der Grund dafür ist simpel. Bisher gab es ein "Grund-logo", das auf allen Instanzen benutzt wurde. Die einzigen Ausnahmen stellten das "bunte" Logo der deutschlandweiten Instanz und das Logo der Ungarischen dar. Regional strukturiert wie die Instanzen waren somit auch die Logos, was dazu führte, dass es kein Logo für museum-digital als übergreifendes Projekt gab (bisher hatten wir für diesen Zweck immer das Logo für die deutschlandweite Instanz benutzt, aber auch das ist ja eine starke regionale Eingrenzung). Das Logo für museum-digital findet zunächst seinen Platz im Handbuch.
