The aim of this paper is to examine how a museum exhibition can allow barrier-free access and engagement of visitors. This paper will discuss Immersive Legacies, an exhibition that presented the digital documentation and virtual representations of a significant heritage building, both physically and in virtual reality. Through the examination of the exhibition, Immersive Legacies and its broader museological context, this paper will discuss the emergence of these technologies in museums and its relation to the Anthropocene epoch. In an age of rapid advancement and destruction, it becomes essential to preserve heritage sites, architecture and cultural objects. Furthermore, connection and communication were, and continue to be facilitated by the technologies that began in the Anthropocene epoch. As a result of this era, heritage can be experienced anytime and anywhere, although it remains vital for citizens to have the opportunity to experience it in museums. In turn, this paper will examine how these technologies can be to help citizens understand and engage with heritage and the past in museums - now and in the future.
