Most people believe that time travel is impossible, but virtual reality has proven itself as a technology that allows users to go back in time into the past.
New applications offer virtual reality(VR) ‘travel in time’ experiences that offer a glimpse to the past. Remember, the technology is still in its early age and those who have the vision and curiosity can imagine how it might look like in the future (Western World???)
Here are some of the best places worldwide where you can travel in time as of 2019:
