China is a country with a history of 5,000 years and has a rich cultural heritage. After thousands of years of sedimentation, many Chinese cultural heritages have been preserved. However, China’s protection of historical and cultural heritage started relatively late, and there are still many places that are not perfect, and digital protection work is relatively late. China is currently in a period of rapid economic transformation and unbalanced social development. In such a short period of development, there are still many problems that need to be solved in digital protection. Although China's research on cultural heritage protection has made certain research results, due to its late start and its relatively backward technology, China still needs to cooperate with foreign countries to launch large-scale projects. It is imperative for our country to strengthen the construction of museums and cultural heritage institutions. It is necessary to strengthen the standardized management of cultural heritage, and it is necessary to maintain cultural subjects and improve the security status of cultural heritage. At the same time, through the digitalization of cultural heritage information resources and the construction of a resource sharing platform, the digitalization of cultural heritage protection will be disseminated through new media. Finally, this paper predicts the future development direction of digital cultural heritage protection based on modern Chinese science and technology protection based on modern science and technology.
