Educational Potential
The VR Museum of Fine Art allows to select a group of paintings and sculptures and presents them on a natural scale to be experimental, in virtual reality, with no limit of interaction.

As if you were in a real museum, the student will be able to consult the map of the exhibitions, as well as the complete description of the existing sculptures and paintings.

At the same time the teacher can contextualize the visit or work as a team so that the student can act as guides.

The idea of combining arts (specially paintings and sculptures) with Virtual reality is a promising topic. This application (or "game" ? ) may be one of the firsts that gets it right in many ways. It is functional , beautiful and fully integrated into virtual reality technology. The result is a enjoyable journey through the finest art sculptures and paintings with the more realistic approach in mind.
To some students not easily interested in these topics, this could be a las resort tool to engage them into knowing about art.
