This thesis is an exploration of the ways in which interactive features in the virtual space can be developed to complement physical museum exhibitions, as well as create opportunities for museums to reach broader audiences. I provide a critical analysis of current online museum exhibition features and how they support museum curatorial missions. As a case study, I describe from the viewpoint of a participant/observer, the design and development of the Web site for the exhibition Pattern Language: Clothing as Communicator at Art Interactive.
