ALL ABOARD THE OYSTER BAY RAILROAD MUSEUM WITH THEODORE ROOSEVELT

Theodore Roosevelt is your interactive tour guide for this immersive experience through history, available now through the Museum’s TRAR™ mobile app.

The TRAR™ experience is full of entertaining, educational, and little-known stories “told” by the 26th president through 3D augmented reality and voiced by the world’s foremost TR impersonator Joe Wiegand, renowned for his astonishing portrayal.

Hear Roosevelt’s first-hand memories of his presidential days, personal reminiscences, and cherished family moments. TR recounts tales of his Nobel Prize-winning contributions to international peace, private encounters with esteemed guests like Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, and pioneering efforts in embracing new technology of the day.

TRAR™ is the newest installment of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation initiative called Digital Tapestry™, a series of augmented reality experiences across Long Island that seeks to enhance visitor engagement with the region’s historical sites and museums. The app was developed by 360XR™, which specializes in historic content.
