BCMA Podcast Episode 16: Virtual Tours with Bryce Mathew Watts of The VR Voyage

December 2020

Today we’re joined by Bryce Mathew Watts, from The VR Voyage, to explore virtual tours. COVID has forced the industry to rethink how it reaches its audience and how it can broaden its audience through new technologies. The VR Voyage is a new virtual reality platform that is helping BC museums, along with other partners around the world, to create guided virtual tours of their institutions. With the launch of the platform in early 2021, people from anywhere in the world can explore your collection and learn about what makes your institution so unique.

With free production costs, generous revenue share schemes, and free marketing services, The VR Voyage is a new way to build new revenue streams and adapt to a rapidly changing world. The idea was developed by UBC alumnus and anthropologist Bryce Mathew Watts. With strong partnerships, this platform will be a way to enter a new technological era and further the education mandates of BC museums.
