This paper discusses a novel metadata element set for describing cultural heritage objects and their digital representations, which is particularly useful for building virtual exhibitions. The element set is based on several international standards and current best practice in museums. Additional elements are used for describing new types of data used in virtual exhibitions and taking into account new ways of using that data. The implementation of the element set and a number of tools used to manipulate the metadata descriptions in the ARCO project are described.
