What’s New

We are delighted to announce that our work with Google Expeditions is now complete and available to use in the classroom.

Google Expeditions is a virtual reality teaching tool that lets you lead or join immersive virtual trips all over the world — get up close with historical landmarks, dive underwater with sharks, even visit outer space!  Built for the classroom and small group use, Google Expeditions allows a teacher acting as a “guide” to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out points of interest.

Now teachers all over the world can download virtual reality tours of, Laxey Wheel, Castle Rushen and Peel Castle.

Just download the Google Expeditions App. and search for Laxey Wheel, Castle Rushen and Peel Castle.

Manx National Heritage tours also contain teacher’s notes and student questions to promote class discussion.

Contact anthea.young@mnh.gov.im for further assistance or information about Google Expeditions.
