A virtual reality experience built in QuestBuild featuring the Eartha M.M. White Museum.

The video below is a 360 version of the Eartha M.M. White VR Experience. This version loses the interactive functionality but still offers all of the information. The Eartha M.M. White VR experience tells the story of Northeast Florida native, Eartha M. M. White, a prominent African American female from Jacksonville who founded the Clara White Mission.

The VR narrative biography tells the story of Ms. White's life and all of her accomplishments. It also gives a glimpse into her home and base of operations which is now the Eartha M.M. White Museum located in Jacksonville, FL.

The QuestBuild file is also available as s sideload from SideQuest VR at the following address:
