The Virtual Past is a Keystone for the Future of Museums
The main objective of the project „The Virtual Past is a Keystone for the Future of Museums” is creation of an international website where anyone interested can find both the scientific and educational information about the most outstanding collections of museums in Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus, as well as materials from the linguo-territorial dictionary, collected by Rezekne Higher Education Institution. The project consists of several parts, the main of which is the website itself along with information, virtual exposure of the Latgalian cultural museum and four interactive games, reflecting the theme of museums and RHEI research. Games are available both on the website and in the form of independent mobile applications for the most popular platforms for free.
In 1961 the museum started to work independently as Rēzekne Local History Museum. Soon after, it opened its own first exposition.
