A screenshot of a camera reflected in a hallway security mirror

The making of this tour

The team at MGH’s Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation and the MGH News and Public Affairs Office developed the content for the tour you’re exploring now. The scan of the building that allows us to create a virtual Bulfinch to explore was made in conjunction with a company that uses specialized software to create three-dimensional digital renderings of real spaces. These mirrors normally help people moving large loads navigate the tight corners of the building’s hallways. Now, they’re also a chance to see the 360-degree camera catch an image of itself.
