Virtual Reality Docks at the Welland Museum

Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 13:00

The exhibit tells the story of the ship's actions in the War of 1812, the discovery of the wreck on the Southampton Beach, the archaeological excavation of the hull and, after years of research, the identification of the hull as HMS General Hunter.  The exhibit includes Virtual Reality experiences with interactive 3D replicas of the exterior and interior of the ship, videos of the ship in action at the famous Battle of Lake Erie, and interpretive panels covering the discovery, excavation and identification of HMS General Hunter. The gallery will also feature a look at other shipwrecks on the Great Lakes. 

The official Exhibition Opening of the HMS General Hunter is April 14, 2018 at 1pm.  All are welcome.  Light refreshments will be served.
