About the Project


Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education with the collaboration of Heritage Malta, has developed a cutting-edge Virtual Reality experience of the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum.

The unique subterranean Neolithic cemetery can now be explored virtually by visitors wearing a headset connected to a computer. The objective of this high-tech research project is to utilise the cultural heritage of our islands as a medium for developing experiences that are simultaneously educational and entertaining.

This 360-degree film was produced using the VR experience as a film set, where the director and cameramen filmed a choreographed visit to the site. Best viewed using a VR headset such as a Google Cardboard, the virtual experience may also be watched on a PC or a smart phone by moving the screen spherically around the viewer.
