Google Expeditions
Field trips are a great way for teachers to engage students and give them a first hand understanding of a subject — but they're not always practical or even possible.
Expeditions allows teachers to make their curriculum come alive by taking their students on field trips to almost anywhere they can imagine. Around the globe, on the surface of Mars, on a dive to coral reefs or back in time — abstract concepts come to life in Expeditions, giving students a deeper understanding of the world beyond the classroom.

Characteristics of Museums in Second Life
http://www.archimuse.com/mw2007/papers/urban/urban.html
A Second Life for Your Museum: 3D Multi-User Virtual Environments and Museums
The paper gives an overview of some of the museum-like activities currently being undertaken in Second Life. Current development is mainly in the hands of pioneers, often interested amateurs engaging in serious leisure to create spaces enabling them to share their interests with others.
These efforts are explored in this paper through a systematic analysis of museum visits and a qualitative analysis of interviews with designers and developers of museums in Second Life.
Findings identified include the impact of the current technology on what is created, and the importance of interaction-centric designs.

Museum - School Connections in the Digital
http://www.techlearning.com/db_area/archives/TL/200103/museum.html
Museums have always been havens of learning, places to walk the length of a life-size cetacean or cower beneath the rearing bones of T. rex, its coy hands held primly to its chest. Or maybe you'd prefer to get lost in Monet's garden gazing at the water lilies, explore the mathematics of perspective, or chart changes in war helmets from the time of Genghis Khan to the Crusades.
