There's an interesting one day symposium at the Natural History Museum in October on the use of digital technologies in the heritage sector, including virtual reality (like the recreation of a virtual Rome, above). Say the organisers:

This symposium will showcase new methods by which heritage properties are restoring lost context and animating their stories in order to enhance visitor experience and engagement. All six speakers have practical experience in the application of the latest technologies to explain, educate and engage the public in a wide range of heritage attractions.  Attendees will learn about these technologies, the methodologies, the tools, the successes, the failures and the experiences gleaned from real-life projects.

Personally I think virtual reality will transform the way the heritage sector will engage with audiences. But we're only in the foothills now. The full list of speakers and more details are here.
