The virtual museum is often the online extension of the various physical museums.
The Barnwell County Virtual Museum is a resource available to community organizations, schools, and individuals who want to develop exhibits preserving and sharing the history and heritage of the community.
The content of the Virtual Museum for each community is developed and coordinated by the local organizations devoted to the preservation of the community history and heritage.
The Museum is a donation to the Barnwell County Community as a memorial to the life and work of Billie Jean Sprawls.
