An important part of the Isle of Wight Hidden Heroes Project (kindly funded by Arts Council England) was to open up the Island's museums and galleries to a wider audience - To be able to reach those who might not have stepped inside a museum since their childhood, or perhaps those who are unsure of what they might find behind the imposing entrance doors.
Thanks to the wonders of 360 degree photography, we're now able to provide virtual tours of many of the participating venues - with more being added in the next few weeks.
Take the tour
Pop over to venues page to explore inside Carisbrooke Castle Museum (and Princess Beatrice's Garden), the Classic Boat Museum Gallery and newly opened Boat Shed, County Record Office, the Museum of Island History at Guildhall, Newport Roman Villa and Quay Arts.
How to use it
Taking a tour is as easy as using Google Streetview. Click into the photo, hold and move around looking up down and around.
Click on the large arrows to navigate through the venues. Some are on several floors, which you'll see indicated on the right-hand side of the screen (1st and Gnd).
We hope you enjoy the tours.
