United States Marshals Museum Unveils Virtual Reality Technology

FORT SMITH, Ark. (Jan. 4, 2018) – Explore the United States Marshals Museum sooner than you thought possible through state-of-the-art virtual reality technology. The virtual tours give users a dynamic digital experience, letting them see both inside and outside the innovative facility before the walls are even built.

“We hope these tours help build excitement in the Fort Smith community about the project,” said Patrick Weeks, President and CEO of the Marshals Museum. “By harnessing the power of virtual reality, we’re able to provide the community with an immersive experience that will put them in the driver’s seat.”

The virtual reality tours were made possible through a collaboration with CDI Contractors and Polk, Stanley, Wilcox Architects. Together, the two entities created high-resolution computer-generated panoramas of the museum building. The Museum can be viewed from seven different locations, including the 20,000 square feet blank canvas which will ultimately become our exhibit hall.
