I want to set up a visual mind map/memory palace landscape type city using some kind of 3 virtual world technology. What are some options?

The idea is a giant landscape where there is a part of the city for each topic like history, philosophy, psychology, etc. And there are buildings representing subsets of these topics. i.e. a building for objectivism, one for utilitarianism, one for idealism, etc. in the philosophy part of town. Then you travel down river to say, chemistry cove or something. And on and on.
And using the 'method of loci' memory technique create a building for each book I read where each room would be a chapter where I could mentally place stuff to be remembered. We remember better when we incorporate the spatial part of our brains, so I figure if I have a giant city with all the stuff that I've learned, it will all be more accessible to me.
I've looked into second life, but it's pretty expensive. What could be some good options?
