This exhibition project presents the development of a room-scale Virtual Reality (VR) cultural heritage experience, a transmedia storytelling approach for showing museology VR content in a public setting. “Tomb of a Sultan: A VR Digital Heritage Approach” features the 19th century tomb of Sultan Hussein Shah as a three dimensional model reproduced using photogrammetry from the actual heritage site in Malacca. Room-scale VR experience has been made possible with the introduction of sensor-based head mount displays (HMD). However, the user experience and criteria for hyper-realistic VR in the cultural heritage context requires further study in terms of method and apparatus. In this project, we developed a prototype system, which provides participants an immersive museum gallery educational user experience.
