Currently, visiting museums is one activity that gaining its popularity from primary and secondary school students, which makes museum an important part of second classroom. However, this kind of educational activity is limited by several factors such as transportation, time and space, etc., which result in several defects such as limited visiting efficiency, lacks of evaluation for teaching achievements etc. To solve these problems, we put forward a countermeasure program of digital museums towards second classroom for primary and secondary school students. First, we analyzed the studies of second classroom based on the digital museums both in China and other countries. On the basis of such analysis, we took Zhejiang Education Technology Museum as a template to design and develop Zhejiang Education Technology Digital Museum. Then we used theory of pairing design to study the performance of the traditional museum education and the digital museum education respectively. Finally, we evaluated users’ experience of Zhejiang Education Technology Digital Museum by carrying out a questionnaire survey.
