Virtual Pocket Museum App. We have developed this app so that you can have 3D access to objects from the collection.


Virtual Pocket Museum App

Jersey Heritage Virtual Pocket Museum is a brand new app that allows you to view various ancient artefacts from the Jersey Heritage collection in 3D and Jersey Heritage members can even hold objects such as a mammoth tooth in their hand using “augmented reality”. 

The 3D option allows you to rotate, pan and zoom the artefact to view it on every angles whilst the augmented reality allows you to view a virtual artefact right in your hand or on the table in front of you!

You can also download a 3D Jersey Militia Man from our 'My History' characters - Francis - and bring him to life in the augmented reality area.

New artefacts will be added regularly to the gallery for you to download and view on your own device.
