This review explores the role of partnership in creating The Catherine Storr Experience, which presents the life, work and collection of children’s author Catherine Storr through a virtual reality platform. Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children’s Books, which holds Catherine Storr’s archive, worked with Professor Kim Reynolds, who developed the content for The Catherine Storr Experience, and Digital Cultures in Culture Lab at Newcastle University, which provided the virtual reality expertise. Partnering with university researchers has enabled this museum collection to be interpreted and presented to a public audience using cutting-edge technology.
