If you landed here, then you are probably eager to discover how to make tourism attractions available to travellers during this time of crisis. Unfortunately, the tourism industry has been severely impacted by Covid-19, and it will probably take more time until we can safely return to travel and explore the wonders of the world, but do not get upset! This does not mean that it is impossible to make tourist attractions available to the general public and to profit from it.
Nowadays, technology is so advanced that you could create a virtual tour of your museum, zoo, monument, or any other attraction you would like to put out there. Many museums, like the British Museum, the Uffizi gallery, Musée d’Orsay, the San Diego Museum of Art, and many more, are using virtual reality to show their collections and exhibitions (check here for more info on which museums are using VR). Currently, Virtual Reality is being used more and more in a variety of industries, and not only in gaming.
Virtual Reality for tourist’s attractions can help you spark interests in future visitors, immerse them in the wonders of your exhibitions, or on your monuments’ history, or on how your animals live inside your zoo.
Creating an app of collections or showcasing it on your website is the best option right now. Linking an online store to the above-mentioned options will ensure some revenue as well!
Plus, Virtual Reality tours, contrary to a normal social media channel, offer virtual visitors the possibility to tailor their visit to their interest, making them more engaged and interested in what you can offer them.
Virtual Reality tours can engage visitors of different ages, the younger ones can be entertained with games about the exhibitions or the places, and the older ones can discover and immerse themselves in interesting facts about that particular object or monument – it fits everyone perfectly! Investing in creating one, or more, of these tours is not only good in today’s world situation, but it will also boost the interest and engagement of people all over the world, all year round. And with an always evolving and bettering technology, your virtual visitors will be continuously more engaged and eager to visit your virtual tours.
Making tourist attractions available during Covid-19 is challenging, but we do not need to be afraid to use technology for our needs. It is time to start using Virtual Reality for our benefit.
