Second Life creators are taking elements of role play, re-enactment, and re-creation to allow Residents to experience different places - even in different points of time throughout history. That’s what Cyperpiper Roelefs and his team have set out to do with Luxembourg City and 1867 The Virtual Pfaffenthal.

The Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg hosts an exhibit in the physical world  that enables visitors to experience Cyberpiper’s virtual Luxembourg City and 1867 The Virtual Pfaffenthal in Second Life. The exhibit also includes Oculus Rift stations for more immersive exploration.

In addition to the exhibit at The Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg, Cyberpiper has created a virtual representation of Fort Thungen in Second Life which visitors to the Musée Dräi Eechelen can access with the use of computers setup inside one of the forts rebuilt towers. These stations allow patrons to travel back and time and experience the Fort as it was years ago.

Cyberpiper has also re-created Fort Thungen for an immersive experience inside the Musée Dräi Eechelen - which is housed in the fully restored Fort. Inside one of the fort’s towers, patrons can travel back in time to explore the Fort’s history from inside Second Life.

In this episode of The Drax Files: World Makers, Cyberpiper discusses how walking and living - virtually - in historic regions enhances traditional understanding of history. Watch the video

and visit these locations in world for yourself.
