Fiji Museum added 16 new photos to the album VIRTUAL MUSEUM.

We take a trip back in time to one of the major tasks undertaken by the Fiji Museum in 2015/2016; the production and eventual launching of the Fiji Museum’s Virtual Museum. The Virtual Museum was launched by Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy on April 22, 2016 at Naitasiri Secondary School. The initial stages of production started off in November 2015, photographing the entire artefacts on display. These were done in stages involving 58 displays in five galleries and ended in February 2016.

The initial scope of work involved:
- 854 items on display in the museum included in the Virtual Museum
- 609 artefacts photographed in 23 photography sessions
- 246 images scanned and provided by the Fiji Museum
- Shots prepared for 854 items, 58 Displays and 5 Galleries
- Over 1300 individual photographs on display.
- Over 35,000 words of description researched, written and incorporated into the Virtual Museum to provide for an enhanced educational experience for visitors.
- 66 voice-overs written and recorded
- 5 videos produced

Production team:
Consultant: Damien Whippy
First Fighter: Dave Lavaki, Derek Cleland.
Fiji Museum: Ratu Jone Balenaivalu, Jotame Naqeletia, William Vavaloa, Mereia Luvunakoro & William Copeland.
