3D Virtual Tours
In response to the COVID-19 crisis and the limitations it has placed upon sharing in-gallery experiences and materials with our audiences, the Hood Museum of Art is pleased to announce that it is now capturing physical gallery spaces with 3D Matterport™ imaging equipment and software. To move through Matterport™ virtual spaces, users simply click on the transparent circles on the floor. Supplementary content can be accessed by clicking the color-coded dots throughout the space.
3D virtual tours currently available to the public:
- Form & Relation: Contemporary Native Ceramics;
- Courtney M. Leonard's site-specific installation BREACH: Logbook 20 | NEBULOUS; and
- José Clemente Orozco's mural cycle The Epic of American Civilization

Players will work through a series of challenges featuring puzzles, riddles, and hidden codes related to six outdoor sculptures. Along the way, players will learn about the extraordinary works of art that enliven Dartmouth's campus.
