The three Virtual Reality experiences have been created as part of the EU funded TIDE project, and include ‘The Storm, The Sea – The Saldanha’ at Fanad Lighthouse, the ‘Wrath of the Atlantic, Wrecks of the Armada’ at Inishowen Maritime Museum & Planetarium and the ‘Beware! Convoy Below World War 1’ at Fort Dunree.
The TIDE Project is funded by both the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme and Donegal County Council and is being led by Ernact. Other project partners are from Northern Ireland, UK, France, Spain and Portugal. The main focus of the TIDE Project is to promote a common maritime theme among all the projects partners while at the same time adding a new dimension to both the tourism and cultural heritage in the Atlantic region using the latest technology and to enrich the visitor experiences.
The TIDE project focuses mainly on the Napoleonic, Spanish Armada, World Wars & Atlantic Migration eras.
To facilitate the official launch of the new Virtual Reality experiences arriving at the museum, we will be closed from 1pm on Wednesday 13th July. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our visitors, however our normal summer opening times will resume on Thursday 14th – with our new VR experiences available to view.
