Museums continue to increase the dedication of their resources to the digitization of the art works in their possession in order to share their collections with a greater audience. As technology has advanced, so too has the ability of museums to visualize and display their exhibitions digitally in 3-D. In an effort to show not only their art works but also the exhibitions themselves, museums have made an investment in a variety of 3-D technologies that enable their staff to design, curate, plan, and share their exhibits.
