About World University and School's Museums' page

World University and School will link with multiple, online museums, as a wiki. While World University & School may develop its own museum over time, in a virtual world, for example, at first WUaS will simply aggregate free, open museums that are accessible on the web. Just as many universities have their libraries, World University and School will have many diverse, free open libraries.
