EPIC Museum Launch New Virtual Tour
EPIC Museum has launched a new virtual tour that’s ideal for explorers and those into Irish history from the safety of your home.
Bbringing the history of the Irish Emigration Museum to our screens, EPIC Museum has launched #MuseumFromHome, their brand new virtual tour. Once you’ve logged on, EPIC have chosen a collection of their favourite stories from their exhibition, which enable you to explore the sites of the museum whilst sitting from the comfort of your own homes.
So how exactly does the virtual tour work? Well, it’s navigated in a similar style to Google Maps and Google Street Views! Therefore you can click on available points around the space on the screen to learn more as you navigate the rooms of the museum.
The virtual tour is bursting with educational videos, informative audio descriptions based on each gallery, historical images and links to various articles.
What’s more, the tour can also be viewed as a VR tour! If you have access to a VR headset, such as the Samsung Gear or Google Cardboard, the tour can become your very own virtual reality. Feel as though you are walking through the museum, even from your living room or the garden!
The virtual tour will be available online until EPIC can safely re-open to the public following the COVID-19 pandemic.
