          Abstract

          Virtual reality offers museums the possibility of creating immersive and interactive user experiences which have not hitherto been possible. It is essential, however, to take into consideration the views, attitudes and experiences of the visitors to museums to achieve the maximum impact of these technologies. We present the results of a survey of visitors to a small museum, undertaken as part of the design work for a VR installation. The results show a good awareness of virtual reality among the museum’s visitors and some experience with it, as well as a clear interest in it as a way of enhancing the museum experience.
