When arriving at the site, select your destination by clicking one of the images on the left hand side. While viewing the 360° images, you may let the slide move around for you or select the circle arrow to explore on your own using the mouse. The background music may also be turned on or off. Some images have a camera icon for an additional image, and, in others, click the “I” icon (if available) for informative text. You can use the arrows within the images to move through the slides, or use the sidebar images.
