Museum is the main place of human civilization inheritance and development, which is an important cultural and creative industry in the city. With the development of society and the progress of science and technology, the traditional museum display has been unable to meet peoples growing cultural and spiritual needs. In the era of digital media, we should make full use of modern information technology to speed up the digital construction of the museum. Therefore, we can strengthen the interaction between the audience and the exhibits, understand the information contained in the exhibits more thoroughly and comprehensively, and then we create a vivid and interesting exhibition atmosphere. The digital construction of the museum is an effective way to enhance the cultural competitiveness of cities. It should conform to the trend of the era and explore communication strategies under the digital media, so as to better meet the growing demand of the public for scientific knowledge and historical culture. The use of digital media for development and construction of the museum has significant improvement. Through this new platform, people begin to pay close attention to the application of digital museum. At the same time, it can bring peoples intuitive visual effects, which can not only reduce the wastage of the cultural relics itself but also can make people to enjoy the scene easier. It’s just like kill two birds with one stone. This paper aims to express the important role of digital technology in the construction of museums and calls for people to strengthen the application and innovation of the construction of digital museums.
