Heritage Storeys is a virtual reality experience exploring the history of the museum's ichtyosaur skull in a time-travelling lift.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the 175 million year journey of the skull, from the time this giant marine reptile swam around Warwickshire’s Jurassic seas through to its discovery in a quarry.

As the doors slide open, a fully explorable scene is revealed – from oceans to battlefields and Bronze Age settlements. Visitors can return as many times as they like and choose a different storey.

The experience is designed for ages 13+ and involves wearing a VR headset for about three minutes.
