Abstract: This discussion raises several challenges and con-tradictions concerning the representation of culture and heritage through new electronic media. The critical issues (discussed and illustrated in current examples found on CD-ROM, in museums and on the WWW) concern several conflicts: a) the conflict between traditional narrative and new media interactivity, b) the changing roles of authorship and readership, c) the appropriateness of experiential and reflective learning, etc. These conflicts show that multimedia can be regarded as an artefact of postmodernism (with similar shared characteristics and dangers). In this paper the postmodernist thought has an important message for all cultural heritage multimedia developers, users and theorists to consider: Cultural heritage multimedia can provide a rich and motivating reader-driven environment that can encourage reflective learning which accentuates that cultural objects and other documentary material are valuable not only for their intrinsic value, but, most importantly, fortheir information value. However, equally, it raises important question whether these glittering images, textsand soundswill be democratically presented and work as a liberation of bygone years?
