As a specific pedagogical transformation of the above-mentioned cultural anthropological approach, the article attempts to answer the questions motivated by museum pedagogy. They are: a) What transitional processes are evident in the world of traditional museums because of digitalisation in the informal processes of museum knowledge transfer? b) How do these processes affect the behaviour of museum visitors and the rituals of the museum visit itself? The topicality of the research to be presented is that museums closed because of the COVID pandemic have been permanently transformed into virtual space, which has fundamentally changed the range of museum content and their museum education programmes. Research complementing the topic analyses the websites of Hungarian museums and examines the main characteristics of virtual visitors (need-based information, search, and user activities) and changes in visitor behaviour. It analyses a) how visitor rituals develop, b) how specific elements of these specific transitional changes appear in cyberspace. The research intervals were Spring quarantine 2020, reopening in summer and closure period from autumn 2020 to spring 2021.
