The museum, which intends to develop inter-cultural dialogue and introduce shared cultural heritage, also focuses on the period between 1815 and 1918.

It brings all the objects and points of the past together and takes an important step to understanding past experiences," said Kırım, expressing their happiness for Turkey to be a part of such an organization. The virtual museum, which can be visited from its official web page www.sharinghistory.org, centers upon 10 themes. It features over 3,000 materials including historical documents, artworks, archeological findings and images portraying daily life.
