Google is letting you tour the Palace of Versailles built by Louis XIV. The "VersaillesVR The Palace is yours" game uses  HTC Vive or Oculus Rift to let users explore paintings, sculptures, furniture, and the famous Hall of Mirrors– basically everything you'd experience on an IRL tour, only without the hordes of tourists.

Instead, you're free to immerse yourself in the Palace– climbing onto the stage in the Royal Opera House and drawing up close to the high altar in the Royal Chapel all with the use of a controller.

You can also switch to night mode to experience the Palace lit by chimney fires. Even if you don't have a VR headset you can still take a peek inside. Google has released an online exhibition featuring over 390 assets, including objects, artifacts, and paintings.

Download the game here.

On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by the Patta dons Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt, who are marking the Dutch brand’s 15th anniversary with historical milestones.
