ART FUTURA '99 will present a wide range perspective of all these new theme parks, including highlights like Disney Quest, as well as Moebius' "Airtight Garage" attraction from San Francisco's Metreon, a Sony Entertainment project.

"Encyclopedia" is the name of a joint project between three European museums: the Pompidou, the Ludwig Museum in Cologne and the Center of Contemporary Imagery in Geneva. A good example of a new type of virtual museum, which already have made some examples reality, are the Ars Electronica Center in Linz and the ZKM in Karlsruhe in Germany.
