In this project, we focus on the 3D modelling of “Qipao” collection, development of virtual museum and integration with digital library. We build 3D virtual museum with different style of room based on the "Qipao" usage period. We made 3D models from the "Qipao"picture and arranged them in the virtual museum. We made the metadata for "Qipao"and fill in the metadata in the digital library. The integration between virtual museum and digital library is in the metadata of each "Qipao"which have unique information.
