Chicago00: A Century of Progress is a virtual reality experience of Chicago's 1933 World’s Fair. Images from the Chicago History Museum’s photography and film archives are combined with contemporary 360 degree site photography to immerse audiences in an experience of a specific place and time in the past. Using historical photos taken from the fair's 628 foot Sky Ride and new drone photography, audiences are transported along the route of the Sky Ride cable cars high above the fair.
Chicago00: A Century of Progress provides a unique view into the fleeting and sensational city within a city that attracted nearly 50 million visitors to the shores of Lake Michigan in the midst of the Great Depression.
For the best experience, view with the Youtube app and Google Cardboard VR goggles.
