(IN PROGRESS) OPENING OF THE NEW VISITORS’ CENTRE
On entering the centre, visitors will receive a set of augmented virtual reality (AVR) glasses which will give them the chance to see medieval murals and numerous works of art as if they were actually on site hundreds of years ago and done with the help of historical simulations and interactive modules. Visitors will get to experience the different construction periods of the cathedral as well as the eventful history of the “Ghent Altarpiece” and its significance in the most convincing but historically correct manner. This augmented reality tour around the cathedral will be offered in nine different languages: the seven languages currently available on the audio guide, plus Russian and Portuguese, and be customised for each language.
