With the development of world science and technology, global exhibition educational programme has entered into a new era. Currently, among 186 countries in the world, Europe, America, Japan and other developed countries have utilized the “4D virtual imaging” as one of the important methods to popularize the science technologies and social conventions. The trend will be completed in a relatively high speed as a consequence of time lapsing and explosive updates in technologies. It can be forecasted in the future. Virtual technology will not only coexist with the entity exhibition but also become a primary educational method.

This paper compares Chinese and Foreign science exhibitions from the aspects such as: the exhibition theories,
designs, contents, and the building of circumstances. Try to find the flaws then correct them. At the same time, we have browsed the world famous virtual science and technology museum network, such as New York Science and Technology Museum, Washington Science and Technology Museum, US Astronaut Science and Technology Museum, Lincoln Memorial and so on. We have used statistics to do our research. Meanwhile, we combined these with the reality of our country, analyzed the differences in science technology vectors; audience groups and communication effects. In the future, how to take advantage of new technology to complete science enterprise should be emphasized.

Nowadays, science and technology museums should attract visitors by using novel exhibition methods, The museums   can   make   them   perceive   the   technology   and   experience   the   technology   from   a  total different   aspect   of view. For the purpose of revealing the uniqueness of science, the meanings can not be limited but should be renewed continuously to touch the audiences’ senses. The author believes that the combination between virtual and substantial technology is the only path develop in the future.
