A virtual reality mobile app now gives visitors the opportunity to see the site as it appeared 3,400 years ago. Louisiana State Parks partnered with TimeLooper, Inc., an interpretive experience technology firm, to create the mobile application Explore Louisiana State Parks. The mobile app provides an interactive on-site visitor experience at Poverty Point World Heritage Site through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology.
