American Experience:

Revolution, Perseverance and Innovation

Available on Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, Oculus Go and Oculus Rift.

This Boulevard experience dives into U.S. history through a virtual exploration of Washington, D.C. and some of its national treasures. The seventy-seven historic objects drawn from the collections of the U.S. Capitol, the National Gallery of Art, the Library of Congress, and The White House illustrate the hopes and struggles that have shaped the United States from the Age of Exploration through the present day, and offer users the opportunity to grasp the underpinnings of American democracy. The introductory narration is provided by philanthropist David Rubenstein.

Accessing a holographic map of the National Mall from the center of the Capitol Rotunda, reveals pop-up information about eighteen important sites, monuments, and institutions in Washington D.C. This map also serves as the portal from the Rotunda to the three other immersive environments within Boulevard’s American Experience.
