Museum objects have been incompletely digitized in terms of quantity so far. The quality of digitization also shows shortcomings. In addition to the standardized and structured collection of extrinsic data, the complete collection of intrinsic data is not only a special challenge but also an indispensable necessity for modeling digital twins.
So far, Digitalization is mainly limited to the simple representation of analog objects with the help of digital media. Communication structures and methods of Web 2.0 or the semantic web are lacking, thus a comprehensive, standardized and complex structured digital information space for museum objects is not yet possible.
The digital information space is a prerequisite for the creation of digital twins. The ideational value of the objects as a basis of cultural heritage can be found in the long-term available data and their use. Therefore, the power of disposal and interpretative authority over the originals must be replaced by collaborative structures and the collective use of resources in order to guarantee the future of the museum in the information space.
