Explore the museum through our virtual reality tour

Please be aware that this virtual reality tour was created prior to 2020, so some areas of The Devil’s Porridge Museum have changed. We are looking to update this virtual reality tour, when we have the resources available to do so.

In the meantime you can read our Visual Story or our Accessibility Guide to see a more up to date version of what to expect from your visit.
