Smartify makes museums accessible for a global audience through innovative technology & engaging storytelling.

From a simple idea to the world’s most downloaded museum app.

Our Story

Smartify grew out of four friends’ enjoyment of visiting museums and encountering art. Discovering and sharing amazing stories in each collection remains at the heart of our mission as a global technology company.

Founded in 2015, we’re committed to delivering the best mobile experience for museum audiences with cost-effective, reliable technology. We work with collections of all sizes improve the visitor experience on-site and at home; and deliver real business value that you can measure.

We understand the cultural sector and have spent years perfecting our technology which has been tried, tested and proven across leading museums, drawing millions of visitors each year.
