Zubr Curio is a specialist augmented and virtual reality studio catering specifically to the arts, heritage and culture sector by developing high-quality, accessible, audience-centred immersive content and educational experiences.

Inspired by a deep love and respect for cultural heritage, research is at the forefront of our process. Our dedicated team works closely with museum and heritage professionals to create authentic immersive experiences that transport your visitors to another time or place. We push the boundaries of digital interpretation to provide new ways of seeing and experiencing art, heritage, and culture.

We sensitively interpret collections, using our skills to augment the stories you wish to share, and deliver our content in a way which complements traditional forms of engagement and existing exhibitions.

Our clients

Our friendly and open approach, combined with our expertise gained from successfully delivering 300+ projects, sets us apart from other digital studios.

Our clients trust us to deliver unique, content-rich, and engaging digital experiences tailored to their visitors.

We work internationally and across sector: from public-facing organisations like museums, archives, libraries, theatres and schools, to individual artists, trusts and tourism boards.

Our varied client-base means we’re confident our experiences are accessible, intuitive and informative.

Our binoculars

In 2017 we began designing viewing hardware, recognising the importance of offering a simple but enticing route into immersive content for young children, older people, technophobes, and anyone who would prefer not to download or stream content with their own devices.

We launched our award-nominated AR/VR Binoculars in 2022, granting us unique expertise across both hardware and software development.

We understand the guidance

We ensure our work adheres to the Heritage Fund’s digital guidance, and can help advise you on how best to navigate it.

We’re collaborators, not suppliers

We’ll work with you to build something bespoke, as ready-made products or cookie-cutter designs are rarely the answer.

We make things open

We aim to publish all code for publicly-funded projects under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license for other organisations to build upon.
