Virtual Exhibitions

It is now possible to experience previous Theatre Collections exhibitions and the new virtual University of Bristol Museum, Uncertain Space, in interactive and immersive 3D virtual reality.

How to access:

A smart phone, web browser or Virtual Reality headset will all enable a form of access to our virtual exhibitions and the virtual museum, Uncertain Space.

A smart phone or web browser will allow you to move about within the virtual exhibition spaces, getting a close look at objects on display and interact with digital media such as audio recordings. A Virtual Reality headset will take your experience to the next level, allowing for a completely immersive 3D experience of our exhibitions.

From home:

If you own a smartphone, computer, or Virtual Reality headset it is possible to experience the exhibitions from your own home.

The Theatre Collection holds several Virtual Reality headsets which are available for use by anyone in our Reading Rooms.
