Learn the history of the planet through an immersive experience of walking through the interactive halls of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. On the first floor of the museum, you will see the huge African Bush Elephant and learn the culture of African people. Here, you will face the mega-tooth shark and dive into the ocean along with the blue whales. Dinosaur lovers will be excited to see giants like Tyrannosaurus rex, Diplodocus and many more. The second floor will take you to the world of bones where you will see skeletons of monkeys, giraffes, snakes, turtles and many more. Critical Distance augmented reality experience will give you a possibility to swim with the orcas and “see” the underwater world through their eyes.
