Travel log: 100 years from now, humans have completely altered the landscape. Trees become buildings; cities merge with organic living materials. A love story between biology and technology.

Travel to big future

Next Nature Future Travels is the international travel agency taking you on a voyage to the distant future. Jump on board the VR Time Machine, an experience that combines scientific knowledge, philosophy, and imagination to transform you into a digital avatar. VR glasses take you to a hyper-realistic digital environment, while a carousel-like structure sends you floating through air. In the evocative location of the Evoluon, the trip will take you to a journey forward in time, to the end of the Earth, the solar system, and the beginning of everything. Are you ready?

What other humans said


“An intense experience, which is visually so overwhelming that you wish to slow down, and take some time to look around. But it simply isn’t possible to shift gear in a time machine.”

—Rob van Hattum, Chief Science Officer NEMO Science Museum


Travel log: 1,000,000 years from now, a meteorite hits the Earth. A period of cooling follows. A new ice age.


"Pure joy! It was such a tremendous experience, one that sparked my imagination for what the world could be in the future to come."

—Khanh Nguyen, In House Digital Activation at Philips 


Travel log: 1,000,000,000 years from now, an intellegent life force seems to have fused underground and risen from beneath the ice.

How to visit

Next Nature Future Travels will open again in the Evoluon in Eindhoven on 24th September 2022 as a part of the RetroFuture exhibition.
