Marine history and culture is an important part of China's diverse traditional culture, which leaves behind colorful and intangible cultural heritage. It's a major issue on how to better disseminate marine history and culture. This paper attempts to study the dissemination of marine history and culture based on the digital technology and virtual museum technology. For this, the literature analysis and field survey methods were used to investigate and analyze the problems existing in marine historical and cultural dissemination in China. The survey results show that the lack of public cultural identity, insufficient industrialization, and single means of dissemination are the main problems in the dissemination of marine history and culture in China. Finally, based on this, a digital process system for marine history and culture was constructed, and a digital dissemination platform was also established from three aspects: constructing a digital virtual museum, using a mobile new media terminal, and building a WeChat and Weibo-based platform. The research findings explore the innovative dissemination mode of marine history and culture, and enrich the ways to protect, develop, and inherit marine history and culture.
