Do you need help with our CMS?

Creating Europe’s museum database and keeping it up-to-date is no easy task, but with your help it’s improving daily!

We have tried to make our CMS as user friendly as possible, but we need your feedback! Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. We'll be happy to assist you!

To make your work easier, we have already integrated several hundred collections from Europeana and if you’re providing data to Culture24 it automatically shows on your listing – provided we have your code in the system (UK museums only).

Once again, we’d like to thank you for your help! We take your feedback very seriously, so keep it coming.
