If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza, you can hold off on purchasing the plane ticket. An online experience now brings Giza to you, transporting you across the world — and through time — to the land of the Pharaohs.

Dassault Systèmes created a 3D model of the Giza Necropolis, a free application available to all Internet users, which was unveiled Tuesday at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

This digital model is the only way we can see Giza in its ancient splendor, due to looting, erosion, urban sprawl and artifacts being sent across the world.

“You are visiting and discovering through a new kind of interactive story,” says Mehdi Tayoubi, VP of design and experimental strategy at Dassault Systèmes. “Each time, you can take control of the 3D expereince as a time travel tourist.”

Giza 3D, which targets academics, researchers, museums and the general public, shows how technologies can be integral to historical and art preservation.
