Microsoft launched a virtual museum to commemorate 20 years of Xbox

In 2021, Microsoft celebrates two decades of Xbox—one of the most iconic products from the software giant. To commemorate such a milestone, Microsoft launched a virtual museum of Xbox history. It allows everyone to learn the story of Xbox and dig deeper into four generations of Microsoft consoles, plus visit a separate section dedicated to Halo. The museum is available inside a 3D space you can access and walk through using any modern browser.

Microsoft Virtual Museum To Commemorate 20 Years Of Xbox

To visit the virtual museum of Xbox, head to this website. You can learn the history of Xbox using a customizable avatar inside four main sections, each dedicated to one generation of Xbox (the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series).


Overall, there are 132 different points of the Xbox history you can navigate using WASD on your keyboard. For some reason, the museum does not support controllers, so the keyboard is your only option.

As you walk around the virtual museum of Xbox (please, for the love of God, don't call it "metaverse"), you can spot other people roaming and learning about Microsoft's attempts to disrupt the console market. There are stories about mistakes, successes, milestones, and various interesting tidbits. The museum is not shy to tell about Microsoft's blunders, such as "rings of death" in Xbox 360, the rise and fall of Mixer/Beam, or failed attempt to buy Nintendo in 2000.

Besides, you can sign in with a Microsoft account to discover your personal Xbox museum with statistics, achievements, numbers of games you played, number of consoles you owned, first sign-in date, etc.

The virtual museum of Xbox is a glorious tribute to beloved consoles. Whether you are a newcomer to the Xbox family or a veteran that went through all four generations, everyone will find something interesting in the museum dedicated to 20 years of Xbox.
