Waves of Change

The University has launched a virtual museum! The Uncertain Space will host a programme of unique exhibitions and is a new way to experience artefacts from the University’s cultural collections.

A smartphone, web browser or Virtual Reality headset can all act as windows onto the museum. The easiest way to visit is to click here.

If you want to use a VR headset, you can access the Uncertain Space by visiting the Theatre Collection or the University Special Collections in person, where VR headsets are available for anyone to reserve.

University staff and students can also book out a Quest 2 VR headset from the library, please email us to book.

Current Exhibition

The first exhibition Secret Gardens: Exploring pathways through our collections was curated by a group of secondary students from across Bristol, who worked in partnership with curators and exhibition designers to explore the University’s collections during a 12 month project.

Secret Gardens brings together public artworks and artefacts from the Theatre Collection, Special Collections and Earth Sciences amongst others.
