Description: If you’ve been training to be a space pirate and building fantastical contraptions all day, the Museum is your ticket to a well-deserved break. Surround yourself with 1:1 scale sculptures and paintings, and we won’t tell anybody if you touch the merchandise! No rope barriers or glass walls here. Feel free to explore the artwork however you see fit. Roomscale VR lets you walk around, duck under, and even hug the life-sized figures.

The initial release of The VR Museum includes 15 high-fidelity sculptures, and more are coming. In addition, two famous paintings are included, scanned and rendered in crisp detail. In future releases, both collections of sculpture and paintings are sure to expand. The artwork is arranged thoughtfully into four exhibits, each with its own theme.

Review: I feel it will be obvious to most people what to expect here. Yes, it’s a small art gallery and museum featuring some of the worlds most recognisable works of art. While this has been done lots of times before, this time you can get REALLY close to the art, not just from a distance. This sort of free educational content is always very welcoming and if you like visiting museums or art galleries in real life you might well enjoy this. Not bad for a freebie that is for sure, not bad at all.
