Bringing Texas history to life through the power of Virtual Reality.
About the project
The Bryan Museum, which opened in 2015 in Galveston, TX, houses one of the world’s largest collections of historical artifacts, documents, and artwork relating to Texas and the American West. But, considering some parts of Texas are nearer to San Diego than they are to Galveston, many schools across Texas lack the funding and resources necessary to organize field trips to the museum. Driven by the belief that every student, regardless of background or means, should receive the opportunity to deepen their understanding of history, The Bryan Museum recently sought out to create a Virtual Reality tour of some of the best parts of its expansive collection. The vision was to give Texas students the opportunity to take a virtual field trip to the museum to learn about the Lone Star State in a truly engaging way.
A Virtual Reality tour
“The best part about visiting a museum is being able to see historical artifacts up close and personal – to notice all of the brushstrokes and colors that can’t be brought to life in a textbook.
For The Bryan Museum, one of our main priorities was to recreate that experience in VR. With this focus, our team was able to create incredibly accurate 3D models of the artifacts and give users a 360° look at the details and textures of each piece.”
