The paper describes a design and implementation of the browser for the Digital Museum multimedia multi user dungeon (MMMUD). MMMUD browser is a user interface software to the multi user virtual environment provided by MMMUD. We introduce two ideas to realize MMMUD browser with kiosk terminals: the tool metaphor and the video guide. The tool metaphor is a unified interface for acquiring precise information of materials in the virtual environment. Since the tool metaphor imitates real tools used to observe objects precisely in the real world, it is a natural and intuitive interface for the user in the virtual environment. The video guide is an embedded video image in the virtual environment and provides information about the virtual environment to the user
