The experience will also feature the first-ever virtual reality expedition of Machu Picchu, recorded in 2020 during the unprecedented closure of the site during the pandemic.

These breathtaking virtual reality vistas of the mythical landmark, without any humans present, are a passageway for museum guests on an astonishing journey to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
