Ann Frank House VR Puts a New Spin on Education

anne-frank-house-vr-tour-oculus-riftAnne Frank House VR is an education based experience made by Force Field Entertainment and The Anne Frank House Museum. In the experience, you are guided through a tour of the Secret Annex where Anne hid from Nazi persecution during World War II. Excerpts from Anne’s famous diary are narrated while the user gets to explore the various rooms of the Annex and pick up certain items spread throughout. Other options include being able to go through a self-tour variant and is available in 25 different languages. All for free. Anne Frank House VR was originally released for the Oculus Go, Rift, and Samsung Gear VR back in 2018. More recently, the app was ported over to the Oculus Quest in June of this year.

Overall, I have to say the app was pretty impressive. Experiences like this could really be the future of education. The Anne Frank House Museum should also be given a ton of credit here. Trusting an established game development team to add layers of immersion to Anne’s story made it that much easier to connect with. I look forward to what other kinds of experiences can be had with educational VR. The Anne Frank House VR app is available now on Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and Oculus Quest.
