The Instituto de Historia Y Cultura Militar had these two boxes as you first entered. Each seat was on a swivel and came with a Virtual Reality (VR) headset that gave a tour of the museum in your choice of three languages. Word of caution. VR is not for everyone, Catherine felt slightly nauseated after viewing the presentation. I will have to bring my 360 degree camera to the armoury one day.
