MUSEUMS AND THE WEB AT THE TIMES OF COVID-19: In search of lasting museological innovations during the pandemic

The lock-down – experienced as it happened almost overnight – has
ravaged the heritage and culture sector, because the sector was and is
dependent on larger number of actual visitors. Most museums were
shocked, but soon tried to come up with new initiatives. Though mostly
born out of panic, some are innovations and/or worthy extensions and to
stay. To put it in a broader perspective: the corona crisis has been and will
continue to be an accelerator in the adoption of new practices in most
sectors of social and economic life.
