Virtual Reality

Virtual reality gives users an immersive experience by recreating a real or imagined environment and placing them at the heart of the action.

Montréal en Histoires offers several experiences with the app and your virtual reality headset, the interactive terminals or the 360-degree web experience.

Virtual Reality Experiences

Montréal en Histoires has created new virtual reality terminals. With this technology, you don’t need a headset to enjoy a virtual reality experience. The fixed terminals set up in public spaces make the technology accessible to all.

Location of Terminals

Aquatic Complex, Parc Jean-Drapeau

Terre d’expériences – The Future Parc Jean-Drapeau: Through this immersive experience, users can see Parc Jean-Drapeau’s new layout as it will be in 2019. The experience takes the form of a journey through time, from sunrise to sunset, and across the seasons. A narrator guides users throughout the journey. (* Please note that the terminals are not accessible during winter.)

Aquatic Complex, Parc Jean-Drapeau

Terre d’expériences – Expo 67: Thanks to immersive technology, you can experience Expo67: Man and His World as if you were there. The user’s journey begins at Île Sainte-Hélène metro station (now Jean-Drapeau metro station). The immersive experience allows users to discover the pavilions that were the most popular among visitors. The visit includes anecdotes, historical facts and stories about the major event’s highlights. A narrator guides users throughout the journey.  (* Please note that the terminals are not accessible during winter.)
