The article,  Nine Free or Nearly Free Ways Museums Can Take Advantage of Web 2.0 covers a variety of Web-based services and touches on some of the open source initiatives that are now available to museums. I also list a number of inspirational examples, demonstrating how science centers and other museums are using Web 2.0 technologies.
