The Classic-the original designed elevator includes all 26 VRML floors of Pygoya Webmuseum's virtual reality art galleries. Of course it has the longest download time but is the most realistic experience.

MIDI files are electronic or digital music, format with the shortest sound file downloading time, therefore popular for Web use. WAV files sound like actual musical instruments but require much larger files to accomodate the increase data to create such complex sounds. WAV files as alternative background music with audio streaming is planned for the future.

The other elevators are the Express Elevators. Each routes to less gallery floors so have quicker download times than the Classic.


For a quick ride to the top and a breath of fresh air or to shortcut to the VIP Suite, the PH & VIP Suite elevator is constructed for your convenience. The PH includes an adjacent added room named the VIP Suite. Therefore the PH file is the same as the PH & VIP file. The selection, VIP Suite in Terminal VRML, is the same PH file but with a different viewer/brower entry position of the 3D space. A VIP Suite not attached to PH is under construction. Such an alternative will shorten downloading time of VIP Suite shows (although it sacrifices a bit of realism- PH & VIP are virtually attached in Cyberspace).


For more information about the works of art than provided within each gallery's "History" room, please go to the Webmuseum's Permanent Art Collection Archive
