The U-M Museum of Natural History has launched a new exhibition which will explore the museum’s rich collection of prehistoric whale specimens in a 3D immersive environment accessible anywhere, any time!

Using the onscreen joysticks, you can move through the belly of a whale skeleton, listen to University of Michigan researchers talk about prehistoric whales, and watch how fossils are cast.

This virtual gallery unites information and fossils that are spread across museum exhibits, with a bit of additional information, to tell the story of how whales evolved from ancient land mammals into the water-adapted creatures we know today.
