Bronze Age Artifacts Brought to Life by Virtual RealityThe British Museum recently welcomed visitors over the age of 13 for a 3D journey through a Bronze Age site during the British Museums Virtual Reality Weekend, reports The Star.

To make it happen, the museum partnered with Samsung, giving visitors access to experience 3D scans of Bronze Age objects from the museum’s collection in their original setting, using Samsung’s Gear VR devices.

As reported in The Star, a virtual reality (VR) “full dome” — designed by Soluis Heritage — was one option given to visitors allowing them to explore the Bronze Age exhibit. A Samsung Galaxy 10.1 was offered as well.

Very few museums have offered such an experience using VR technology, although there are several museums currently working on VR based projects at this current time.

At London’s National History Museum, David Attenborough narrates First Life– a 3D journey depicting sea creatures from 500 million years ago.
