National Geographic Museum – “Tomb of Christ: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre Experience”

The National Geographic Museum in Washington DC features an impressive rotation of immersive temporary exhibitions. In November 2017, the museum became home to its first 3D virtual exhibition, “Tomb of Christ: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre Experience”, an immersive and fascinating journey through the incredible beauty and dramatic history of what is believed to be the ancient site of Jesus Christ’s burial and resurrection.

Following a historic restoration of this holy structure, as featured throughout various National Geographic Channel programs, Falcon’s Creative Group was hired to create an exhibition experience that would transport guests to one of Jerusalem’s most reverent sites to uncover the abundant history and enduring mysteries of this religious and cultural landmark. During the restoration and renovation efforts, state-of-the-art LIDAR and photogrammetry technology was used to capture nearly every inch of the church’s architectural anatomy. These supremely precise scans were then utilized by the Falcon’s team as they led the efforts in planning the guest experience within National Geographic’s existing museum space. Falcon’s brought these scans to life in vivid photo-realistic color and stereoscopic 3D 10K resolution as well as producing the remaining media pieces throughout the experience.

Falcon’s was honored to have been entrusted with such a profound and meaningful subject matter and worked hard to achieve the historical accuracy and academic credibility that is synonymous with the National Geographic brand. Working closely with Dr. Frederick Hiebert, National Geographic Society’s archeologist-in-residence and a member of the renovation team, we collaborated to ensure that every aspect of the experience achieved maximum authenticity, down to the smallest detail.

National Geographic Museum is located in: Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
