Virtual Reality Laboratory (Opening June 3!)

This first-of-its-kind exhibit will completely transport you into immersive new worlds. Eight science-themed stations will let you blast off with Apollo 11, journey inside the human body, explore the wonders of the deepest oceans – and much more! The VR Lab will also feature Acadiana 360, a captivating new way to experience our uniquely Cajun culture through virtual reality. Two-step at a Fais Do-Do, ride in a Mardi Gras parade and even take a swamp tour – all captured using advanced VR technology.
