Maybe you want to travel the world and experience history in person.  Maybe you love learning about ancient cultures.  A new interactive experience available to everyone on the internet brings the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt to you, to explore and learn at your own pace.

The creators of the program brought people from many fields together to provide as much information as possible.

You can experience the Pyramids in two ways: take a guided tour from an expert, or wander the temples, tombs and burial chambers on your own.

There are notes in each site, including field journals from archaeologists, maps, current and historical photos, and objects constructed in 3D.

Even though the project was launched Tuesday and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the project is only 10% complete right now.  It currently includes four temples and the Pyramids of Khufu and Menhaure. The Pyramid of Khafre, the middle of the three pyramids, and the Sphinx have not been added yet. Many additions are planned.
