Virtually Versailles IN 2023
Following on from Singapore in 2018 and Shanghai in 2021, 2023 will see both Hong Kong and Macao welcome the Virtually Versailles immersive exhibition. The experience here is an interactive, smell and sound immersion into the Palace and its grounds, as visitors wander through 360-degree digital projections of some of Versailles’ most iconic spaces: the Hall of Mirrors, the Royal Opera, the Battles’ Gallery, and the Mercury and Venus Rooms. Visitors can also hop on a connected bike for a fun tour of Versailles’ gardens, or get close to masterpieces from the Versailles art collections thanks to the “Versailles VR—The Palace Is Yours” virtual reality experience.
Each edition features a visitor itinerary adapted to inspire local audiences to visit Versailles in the future.
