Virtual Reality

Experience archaeology like never before using the HTC Vive in the MOA VRchaeology room.

What’s On

VR Iroquoian Longhouse

Experience blazing fires, sleeping bunks strewn with furs, and stored food as you wander through a 16th century longhouse. Try the virtual archery range and learn about archaeological artifacts from the Lawson Site.

Developed by Western University PhD candidate Michael Carter, this exhibit combines the interpretation of archaeological evidence and ethno-historic records with CGI and VR production. This is the first Virtual Reality exhibit in London and one of only a few in Canada where archaeological finds are transformed into such an immersive experience.

*Coming June 2017*  Medieval Prayer Bead

Using the technologies available at Sustainable Archaeology: Western, MOA will be introducing a new virtual exhibition featuring a deconstructed Medieval Prayer Bead.
