Heritage and Museums

Invite your visitors to relive history with AR heritage and museum interpretation, or explore virtual restorations of historical sites and ruins.

Engage your audience with bespoke augmented reality content.

With its ever-increasing possibilities, augmented reality for museums and heritage is the perfect approach for a wide range of cultural and historical organisations to add an entirely new dimension to their visitor experience.

Your existing interpretation can be complemented by skilfully crafted immersive content. By tapping in to this new technology, you can excite your audience in ways that were previously impossible – whilst strengthening your digital outreach and social media engagement.

Augmented reality is fast becoming the most powerful way to show people what historical sites once looked like. We work with academics, interpretation teams and tour operators to recreate authentic 3D environments and artifacts before implementing them into an accessible, user-friendly AR application.

Creating augmented reality for cultural heritage sites can provide a visual and interactive boost to any exhibit, without detracting from traditional engagement. In fact; physical exhibition design, printed guidance, and even the tour guide role can all benefit from digital enhancement.

Zubr specialises in augmented reality for museums and heritage.

The Zubr team has a unique understanding of both the relevant cutting-edge technologies and the nature of humanities interpretation design. We have previously worked with organisations such as the National Gallery, Battersea Power Station, Bristol Old Vic, the British Council and Carrickfergus Castle to bring incredible visions of the past to life.

We follow a flexible approach to AR content design and deployment, as no two use cases are the same – with output ranging from app-based augmented reality for historical sites, to Instagram filters for museums and AR binoculars installed on location.

See our selected example projects below, and get in touch with us to arrange a live demonstration.
