The Pop up VR museum, which can be experienced by using the virtual reality glasses, has been made by Aalto University’s Media Lab in cooperation with the Design Museum as part of the European SPICE research project. In the workshop, we will also collect feedback about the Pop up VR museum. The pop up VR museum is developed based on the feedback given by the users.
