The Indonesian government has implemented a resilience policy against the Covid-19 pandemic through the learning from home (belajar dari rumah/BDR) program and the fulfillment of the demands for the Guidelines for Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) aimed at preventing the spread and infection of Covid-19 is no exception at the museum. The Brawijaya Museum has a dual role as an educational tourist destination site as well as a military site that stores a number of artifacts, rare book collection, and archives of the Indonesian National Army (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Darat/TNI AD) histories related to service to the Republic of Indonesia. Therefore, this type of R&D research with a qualitative approach was carried out to create virtual content for the Brawijaya Museum based on augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) as a means of distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. After the development of the virtual content of the Brawijaya Museum, a test of the effectiveness of the content was also carried out in providing experiences and feelings as if they were psychologically present (telepresence) from the perspective of museum managers and students. The Brawijaya Virtual Museum can be a win-win solution strategy for site managers and edu-tourism tourists where it is possible to travel and learn from home through virtual reality and augmented reality content regarding architecture and also the collections of the Brawijaya Museum without having to visit directly during the Covid-19 pandemic.
