Can this old CD ROM be resurrected?

Dear AskMe tech folks- there's an older CDROM out there that was designed to play and display on the IBM 286, Mac II, and Mac LC. Is there a tool, emulator, or hack out there that would allow me to play and view it on my current Apple (running OSX)?

The catch here is that the CD doesn't just have an early video game on it, for example, which might be easier to render- it has a lot of photos. I'm fine with not being able to copy and save them, new skool style, and maybe take screenshots instead, but I'm afraid they'll be wildly distorted.
Ive seen this question
but am afraid I don't have the chops to understand the basics of what the poster is talking about.
If you have any experience with this sort of thing and have advice to offer I'd be grateful!
