Creative design firm NorthernLight has created Dare to Discover: A VR Journey, a brand new virtual reality visitor experience, for the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.

The experience, which opened on 14 December, takes place on board the Amsterdam, a VOC (Dutch East India Company) trading ship. It was inspired by Reinier Nooms’ 1664 masterpiece, View of the River IJ. The piece, which was acquired by the National Maritime Museum in 2016, depicts a number of warships in front of the building that now houses the museum.

Dare to Discover takes visitors on a flight across a 17th century working port in Amsterdam, it incorporates surround sound, special effects, motion graphics and a digital reconstruction of the port, to bring the experience to life and immerses visitors in the ‘Golden Age’ of maritime history.

NorthernLight was responsible for the concept of the experience, which was developed in partnership with the National Maritime Museum, and its design and creative direction. The VR content was developed by Dutch media firm ShoSho.
