The San Diego Air & Space Museum is now available to people all around the world thanks to a virtual tour program.
The Balboa Park museum announced Wednesday that it now offers tours through BEAM Virtual Tour Program. Virtual visitors can now engage with museum exhibits in real-time with a fully interactive tool that moves, sees, and speaks on command through a motorized stand.
Virtual visitors are also able to interact with an in-house guide or docent as they explore the galleries, seeing artifacts as clearly as if they were at the museum. Comments and questions from offsite visitors can be relayed and responded to immediately, according to the museum.
The program is supported with a grant from the NBC Universal Foundation.
The program will begin in January.
