This thesis was made at Nanyang University in Singapore as a part of the Digital Heritage project of the Centre for Advanced Media Technology (CAMTech). The idea of the Digital Heritage project is to use Virtual Reality Technology for recreating cultural heritage in a new way that includes modeling Virtual Guide and all information of cultural heritage as a learning environment. The visitor is a learner and the visit is a learning process where a variety of factors influence visitor's virtual environment experience. To be able to help him to easier follow his interest, the user oriented approach in virtual environment is needed. The new idea of assisting the user by providing him the appropriate context dependent information and using his feedback to refine and improve the environment are the main topic of this thesis. The first part of this work, gives an introduction from psychological point of view by examining the user in the role of the visitor. The wide research field of museum experience is used to identify factors important in his visiting session. The concept of this thesis describes the new virtual environment and idea to assist the user in his learning process through encouraging curiosity and active participation. The associations to the real-world analogies are helping the user to understand the knowledge as whole and not only its isolated parts. As a result, the new virtual environment is implemented with the Peranakan culture as content of the virtual environment.
