Estonian Museum of Natural History
With the help of AR and VR, the Estonian Museum of Natural History enriches the museum experience, making otherwise invisible organisms and processes visible to visitors. With the help of VR, we have recreated the ancient sea that was situated on Estonian territory millions of years ago and simulated the world perception of bats. With the help of AR, we have revived otherwise passive fossils and made the Estonian national butterfly so large that visitors can see the scales covering its wings. With the help of AR and VR, we are creating more and more “layers” to our exposition, and we can probably say that we are currently VR cinema with the largest number of visitors in Estonia.
