Welcome to Museums of the World

Museums of the World presents and promotes museums and cultural heritage across the world.

Museums of the World website is accompanied with a suite of mobile applications, providing users with up-to-date information about museums and galleries worldwide in one place – including visitor information, exhibitions, events, collections, interactive audio guides and more.

Who we are

Museums of the World is a project of Semantika. We’re a smart, passionate group of people who work hard:


To gather up-to-date information about museums and galleries around the world in one place - visitor info, exhibitions, events, collections, and more.


To bring this information out to the public to use and enjoy in various formats, including websites and mobile applications.


To provide museums and galleries with an internet presence, promote them and enhance their visibility.

What we do

Our database already contains tens of thousands of cultural heritage institutions with at least basic information and we have more data coming in every day – from a variety of different data sources, including Europeana, Culture24 and Culture Grid.

This makes Museums of the World the most extensive listing of museums around the world ever assembled!

We believe Museums of the World to be a valuable resource for the general public interested in museums and culture, museum professionals interested in presenting their museum online and educators wanting to get information about activities museums offer to school groups.
