This poster presents a novel type of Virtual Reality (VR) application for education and culture: a location-based VR Museum, which is a large-room scale multi-user multi-zone virtual museum. This VR museum was designed to support over 100 simultaneous users, walking in a large tracking system (600 m2) and sharing a ten times bigger virtual space (7000 m2) containing indoor and outdoor dinosaur exhibitions. This poster is giving an overview of the system and its main features as well as discussing its potential benefits and future evaluation.
