ABSTRACT
We present an integrated interface that takes advantage of several VR technologies for the exploration of small artifacts in a Museum. This interface allows visitors to observe pieces in 3D from several viewpoints, touch them, feel their weight, and hear their sound at touch. From one hand, it will allow visitors to observe artifacts closer, in order to know more about selected pieces and to enhance their overall experience in a Museum. From the other hand, it lever-ages existing technologies in order to provide a multimodal interface, which can be easily replaced for others depending on costs or functionality. We describe some of the early results and experiences we provide in this setup.
