High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The WebMuseum, formerly known as the WebLouvre, was founded by Nicolas Pioch in France in 1994, while still a student. IT is one of the earliest examples of a virtual museum. WHen the actual Louvre became aware of its existence, it was forced to change its name. HOwever, many mirror sites were established throughout the world (including websites located in Brazil, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, UK and the USA), making it impossible to eradicate its existence. IT still provides an excellent archival and educational resource of good quality art images and information, although it is no longer very actively updated. ALthough this virtual museum is French in origin, it is available in English.
