It took us right into one of Dali’s paintings, and we had three minutes to wander around virtually, climbing his towers, exploring his desert, and generally being amazed!
Then, Jeff opted out, but I visited the Holocaust Museum, for two hours of pretty heavy immersion – well-done, though, with lots of important information.
