The newly opened Gedung Sate Museum in Bandung, West Java, is set to become a favorite destination for educational tourism by featuring state-of-the-art facilities.
According to tempo.co, the museum uses immersive augmented and virtual reality experiences to display its collection of texts, images and movies.
Virtual reality glasses, for example, offer a bird’s eye view of the building and its surroundings by making visitors feel as if they are flying in a hot air balloon.
Visitors can also watch a short film on the establishment of Gedung Sate in the audio visual room.
