The Chicago History Museum, 1608 N. Clark St., is exploring a watershed moment in U.S. politics—the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Democratic National Convention ( DNC ) protests—with the new virtual-reality experience "Chicago 00: The 1968 DNC Protests."

"Chicago 00: The 1968 DNC Protests," is a virtual reality ( VR ) experience that brings photographs and documents from the Chicago History Museum's archives to the site of the demonstrations that took place in Grant Park in August 1968. Chicago '68 author David Farber, Ph.D., narrates the 14-minute VR tour that can be viewed through YouTube; the Chrome browser; or with Google Cardboard VR glasses.

Museum visitors can revisit the 1968 DNC all-year round in the Museum's permanent exhibition "Chicago: Crossroads of America."

See ChicagoHistory.org; for more on "Chicago 00," visit chicago00.org/experiences.html.
