“Virtual reality is like dreaming with your eyes open.”
Museums started to make use of technology to get their archive opened up to a bigger audience. Virtual Reality is used as the greatest weapon to make use of their technologies.
Virtual Reality can transfer a modest manifest into a completely interactive experience where the viewer can diverse themselves and rather than relying on the text form a natural, physical relationship with the exhibition.
A completely new dimension to the museums can be provided in the virtual world. A virtual reality museum’s manifest brings the distant past to the life and when talking about museums virtual reality is the gateway to the past.
Since many years ago, trips to museums have sounded like a drill, but in today’s museums, they are rather more than interactive as they encourage getting engaged with the material and bring history to the life. For families and singles museums have now become the destination locations during vacations. The medium the museums use to create dynamic, interesting manifests and display is virtual reality.
Virtual reality is being used in a new way in museums by entering through the actual art experience. Visitors may embellish themselves using a virtual reality headset and enter a Dali painting to get experienced it in a new way. Individuals not presented in brick-and-mortar museums can still view its wonder using virtual reality. Still many museums are using the technology, making people allow to visit their manifest remotely using their smartphones and the headsets of the specific type, such as the Cardboard headset being provided by google for the one who likes to visit the American Museum of Natural History for the comfort at homes or classrooms.
As programs of virtual reality are getting more developed and advanced every year, more capabilities are grown. More 3-D galleries and manifests became easily available to anyone having an internet connection, benefiting people to sample culture and history without paying admission fees or travel over miles.
