Virtual Reality Expedition to Ancient Israel

Harvard Semitic Museum
6 Divinity Avenue

“Travel” to an archaeological site in Ashkelon, Israel to explore the first-ever excavation of a Philistine burial ground. For years archaeologists have searched for evidence of these Biblical people. Transport yourself to the center of 360° scenes at an archaeological expedition while your gallery facilitator explains what you are seeing. Borrow a device from the museum or download the virtual reality app on your smartphone and bring it to place in a 3D viewer at the museum for a fully immersive experience.
