Opening on 10 July, the VR Gallery at Level 4 of ArtScience Museum celebrates curiosity, innovation and experimentation through virtual reality artworks.
Equipped with state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) headsets and controllers, the VR Gallery invites visitors to encounter unique immersive experiences from some of the world’s most renowned artists, museums and film festivals.
