Castles & Stately Homes

Keeping an audience interested for long periods of time is a dilemma that all cultural and heritage organisations face.

Castles and stately homes are great treasure troves of stories and adventures that can be told and experienced through games and tours on the Gamar platform. The Gamar platform offers quick content creation and alteration, which allows visitors to discover the hidden history of historical sites in a variety of ways. The content can range from 20 minutes to an hour.

The Gamar app allows your visitors to immerse themselves in the past through holographic game adventures that offer a fresh method of storytelling.
