Building Bridges Between the Virtual and Real utilizes interviews with content creators, technology developers, and museum personnel to detail the ways in which these parties have worked together to bring augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences into the museum. With a brief summary of museological theory on the function of digital technologies in the museum and a survey of AR and VR experiences exhibited in museum space, this study is designed to facilitate and foster collaborative projects that further integrate AR and VR into the museum environment.
