No interpretive innovation recently has garnered as must attention as virtual and augmented reality. Imagine looking through a window in DC and instead of seeing Constitution Avenue, you watch as the lockkeeper leads a barge along the former canal. With VR and AR, national parks are doing it. Come see a vision of the future as we take you to the past to demonstrate how parks are engaging visitors with history through this emerging technology.
