The goal of this “virtual museum” was twofold. It demonstrated the vision of what a “real life” museum would look like, and it also served as an experiment in how a new wave of 3D tools like Unity 3D could be used to provide access to collections in museums and art galleries.
The application also stood on its own as an educational experience because the posters and objects in the application linked to educational content and interactive activities on the web.
Here is a video “walk-through” of the application.
You can still access the project on the archival web site.
