We present a demonstration of a multi-sensory virtual experience that accurately reflects the experience of a real visit to a museum. We have developed a 3D interactive digital museum exhibition corresponding to a photo-realistic 3D reconstruction of the Iconic Treasures exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland’s archaeology building. Users can explore the 3D virtual environment and interact with the displays by accessing high resolution photographs and historical descriptions of the artefacts. This demo will showcase the experience on a 3D laptop with the use of active shutter LCD glasses to create an immersive experience. A key aspect of the demonstration is that it was developed using low-cost or freely available OTS tools wherever possible putting the creation of such digital exhibitions within reach of even modest budgets.
