Human beings think in narratives and through narratives. One of the strengths of immersive exhibitions is the strong emotional connection created by the integration of the experience into the visitor’s autobiographical narrative. Immersive exhibitions are constructed based on emotion that triggers to the desire to know and on sensations.The immersive model has the potential for visitors to learn at both cognitive and affective levels.
