Experience Jamaica’s Cultural Heritage Virtually.
With the advances in technology, it is expected that there will be an increase in visitation to online or virtual museums. For the Institute of Jamaica, this Virtual Museum was created to complement our physical exhibitions, providing “technically” an unlimited space to curate, create and educate without constraints.
