Innovations for reviving monuments
Gaming platforms are entering the world of historical sites with new ways to attract the younger generation.
Augmented reality applications or virtual tours introduce visitors to the world of the past, bringing not only a new experience but also the opportunity to preview from all angles or view a specific monument in different historical periods.
Collaboration with cultural institutions
Many gaming platforms collaborate with museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions. Thanks to this collaboration, new opportunities for education, entertainment, and interaction with history and culture are created.
Digital technologies often enable seeing what a traditional physical tour cannot provide access to.
Gaming platforms offer virtual tours of monuments that are interactive and allow visitors to explore places and objects they would not otherwise have access to.
Such an experience is particularly beneficial for people with health limitations who would not be able to view the sights in the real world.
Another argument is finances or time constraints. Sometimes the tourist destination is simply too far away, and the financial costs of such a trip are unbearable.
Games as an educational tool
Gaming platforms can playfully introduce history, art, or architecture, which may encourage the younger generation to make physical visits or at least seek further information.
For example, some travel agencies specialize in tours of locations known from movies or television series. Thanks to gaming platforms, it is possible to enhance these tours with an educational component in a fun way.
Involvement of the local community
The local community can play a significant role in promoting cultural and historical monuments through gaming platforms. Partnerships with local businesses can lead to increased attendance, restaurants, hotels, or shops with local goods.
If, for example, a mead goblet is the prize in a GPS game, it is highly likely that it will not be limited to just one.
