Public digital history aims to make history and heritage more accessible. This University of Minnesota site hosts a particular kind of digital public history: history in extended reality (XR), or in 3D. Think virtual reality and augmented reality! These platforms allow us to enrich existing historic places with all their layered, complex stories.

HistoryXR is still under construction. Please feel free to check out our inaugural efforts focused on the site of Historic Fort Snelling at Bdote.
