Tynwald Week 2011 marks official opening of the iMuseum (Isle of Man)

Tynwald Week 2011 will mark the official opening of the iMuseum, a new facility which provides unprecedented access to Manx National Heritage collections. Situated on Kingswood Grove in Douglas, the digital museum quietly opened its doors to the public in March this year as the "Home of Manx Memories" (Cummal Cooinaghtyn Manninagh). iMuseum brings together a selection of archives, library and museum collections into one digital resource, and the content will grow significantly over the coming months and years as more of the national collections are digitised. In the future iMuseum will be available online with a simple subscription facility for the Manx Newspapers (1792 – 1960) searchable at the click of a button
