The 5 Matterport 3D Virtual Tours of Museums.

Ranking from the Top, here’s the top 5 favorites Matterport 3D museums from our viewers.

We’ve got our list of the 5 top-ranked Matterport 3D virtual tours of museums around the world. At itourvista 3D we love history and arts. This is why we appreciate seeing wonderful works of other Matterport providers. Eye catching 3D virtual tours rose in popularity even more during the pandemic last year, so we enjoyed sharing them even more on our social media.

Since our followers in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and top 10 other platforms reacted positively to so many of the tours, we decided to rank them in categories. These tours are ranked only for the entertainment purpose of our viewers and to promote the work of this immersive reality industry.

So, if you enjoy art and antiquities and everything related, seat back and relax. You can take a virtual tour of some of the world’s most beautiful and well-known museums by simply turning on your device.

After one year, and based on the popularity, comments and impressions, here’s the top five.

We hope you enjoy them.–

Ranking #1 The Dali Theatre-Museum  Presented by Foundation Gala-Salvador Dali

This is our 3D tour winner. This tour won as the most popular among our audience. The Dali 3D tour is amazingly COMPLETE. The virtual tour is engaging and rich in Mattertags content. Making the viewer more interactive with more than 50 tags with great info. The tour was captured with a Matterport pro 2, one of the top 3D cameras in the industry. Our recognition goes to the author of this tour, they did a wonderful work . The Dali Museum has three floors and the 3D tour walkthrough allows you to navigate very smoothly around the building. Enjoy the experience and see the tour in 3D!

At Itourvista 3D we recommend you use the Oculus gear for a better experience.

Ranking #2 is Planetarium Hamburg Presented by Matterport

We know it is not a museum technically, but the Hamburg Planetarium is one of the world’s oldest, and one of Europe’s most visited planetariums. Of course it had to be in our list! …. and it ranked the second most popular among our audience.  The most impressive part of this tour is the capture of the shape of the dome in the dollhouse view.

Moreover, as you experience the 3D walkthrough, the interior display is great quality. The constellations displayed on the dome of the interior are very beautiful. The tour has lots of Mattertags content of what seems to be great info (we don’t read German.)

For example, one of our viewers was wearing the Oculus while doing this tour and described it like this  “It feels like I can touch the sky with my hands.”

Now, as you tour the main hall, called THE HALL OF THE STARS  you will find one of the most modern projector in the world.  The projector is located in the center of the amphitheater and it  projects different presentations on the dome. Right in this area one can lose the sense of orientation among an endless number of stars to admire.

Ranking#3 is Pitt Rivers Museum  Located in the UK and Presented by

If you enjoy watching archaeological collections, expect to spend some time enjoying this 3D virtual tour of one of the most prestigious museums in London.

Talking about an entertaining experience!

The museum located in Oxford University welcomes you to full exhibits, of the unique collections of Body Art, Jewelry and Accessories from all cultural places.  Of course all these artefacts will sure keep you looking. At the same time, we found the flow of the tour easy, as there are only two floors in this museum. It’s nice to enjoy moving around without getting lost in staircases or hallways.

There is more than half a million of artefacts to explore; dozens of displays and exhibits to enjoy this amazingly done 3D virtual tour.

Moreover, the quality of the light captured by the pro 2 camera makes it very clear enough for the visitor to appreciate the little ethnographic objects from all parts of the world. This amazing tour came third among our audience popularity.

Ranking#4 is the Behringer-Crawford Museum located in USA and presented by SPACE 3D Virtual Tours Makers

This 3D tour is fun to explore but in terms of museums, it’s a little bit of a jumble. As you start the tour, The Kentucky Streetcar welcomes you to their “History of Motion” display.  The entrance of the museum is nice and bright and the viewer can perfectly read  all the exhibits labels and history.

In this Museum,  you can find a fantastic miniature city layout representing Kentucky in the 1880’s and other curiosities.

At the same time you can see prehistoric finds, Baseball Collections, Native American artefacts, jewelry and other collections. The scan around the train displays along with the other exhibits are very clear to read, so the Mattertags are not even necessary. The level of detail is just incredible. Allow yourself around 40 minutes to see everything.

And finally in our list of the 5 best Matterport 3D Virtual Tours Museums…

Ranking#5 The Museum of Natural History at the Toledo Zoo located in the USA and presented by Paul Jacoby

One of our viewers asked- ‘No tour of the zoo?’

Granted, it does say zoo on the title, and well… this was our answer: We know it would be cool to see the entire Toledo Zoo in 3D (but we don’t think 5,300 animals would collaborate with the provider while he spins around the Pro 2 camera!) This virtual tour is to explore only the Natural History Museum located inside the zoo. Overall, the 3D tour is greatly scanned and well edited. The camera was in position at the right angles, so it gives you a good flow of the space. Although, there are no Mattertags to enjoy the details of the exhibitions but it is not really necessary. The work looks very professional, because there are a lot of glass walls and displays around and you can’t hardly ever see the camera in any reflection!  Great Job!

We hope you enjoyed our 5 best Matterport 3D Virtual Tours Museums. We welcome your comments and we welcome your 3D Virtual Tours! Share them on our site or blogs and be part of our favorite tours. Our email  or contact us.
