Virtual Heritage Lab

Science Week is once again returning to Dublinia over two weekends in November, the 10th and 11th and the 17th and 18th of November. We are partnering up again with Noho, an Irish company who create captivating digital experiences and design historically accurate and authentic virtual reality experiences and games!

We will be creating a Virtual Heritage Lab, right in Dublinia.

Go behind the scenes and see what processes are used to create a virtual heritage and digital experience. Find out how important old maps and historical and archaeological data are in constructing a digital city?
Using what was St. Michael’s church at Dublinia, and its Tower, along with St Thomas’ Abbey, you will see just how is a digital model of a city is built and then presented as Augmented Reality.

After this, using specially designed headsets you will take an exciting tour of Medieval Dublin in full 360 VR!
Starting at St. Michael’s Tower, fly out across the medieval city and see its buildings as you never have before, including Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin Castle, the Medieval walls and Gates of the city, the quayside, the monasteries, medieval streetscapes and much more!

Come along and bridge the gap between the ancient past and the modern world at Science Week in Dublinia.

Running from 11am to 4pm on the 10/11th and 17/18th of November,
