"One of the few remaining Lancaster Bombers is being rebuilt so it can be exhibited to the public. Replica Aircraft Fabrications, which is based in Newquay, is gathering parts from across the world to reconstruct the 1943 aircraft. It should take about two and a half years to rebuild the bomber, which originally served with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Meanwhile, a 3D tour of the aircraft has been launched online. The aircraft is currently missing its wheels, wings and tail. It is hoped the wings will be sent from Canada, while its engines will arrive from Oxford."

Great cultural News from the Government and even better that some Cornish Museums are already leading the way in their use of VR.


"Museums can be the perfect fusion between the sciences and the arts, with the creative sector and the humanities working together with new technologies to change how we can experience culture. Creating more ways of seeing and engaging with the treasure trove of experiences available at museums and exhibitions of all kinds means that we are at the forefront of designing the museums of the future.

The government is determined to build on this reputation by investing through programmes like this to expand access to our cultural riches.

This cutting-edge programme will help UK museums engage visitors with innovative new immersive experiences – as well as supercharging knowledge-sharing within our world-leading research sector."  Science Minister Chris Skidmore

The article goes on to say that - Online interactive tours or live streams would open up the national collection to a diverse audience consuming culture and research - such as younger generations who spend more time online - and would also offer remote access options to those with mobility issues or in rural areas. - with Arts Minister Helen Whately saying "Our museums and galleries teach us about our past and help us to better understand the world around us. This funding will see cutting-edge tech enhance the visitor experience, providing exciting new ways for people to explore our history."

Ocean 3D has already created tours for The Museum of Cornish Life and Bodmin Keep - Cornwalls' Army museum  https://www.ocean3d.co.uk/Gallery/Show/?tourId=107
