Europeana Open Culture’ introduces the public to hand-picked and beautiful collections from 17 of Europe’s top institutions, and allows people to explore, share, download and comment on them. The app is now available for all Apple and Android tablet devices.

Developed by Glimworm, the app provides an easy introduction to the breadth of Europe’s treasures through carefully curated themes: Maps and Plans, Treasures of Art, Treasures of Nature, and Images of the Past. The new version includes over 350,000 images.

Europeana Open Culture presents stunning visual collections from Europeana with large images – great for those smaller details - and a ‘comment’ option that opens up the possibility for dialogue between many people exploring the same images. What’s more, customers can download any item and use it for their own purposes – perhaps as a screensaver, for school work or their own creative activities. They can also link the items to other online resources like Wikipedia for more context and richer information.

See the full press release for more information about the images and the app itself.

Download the app from iTunes or Google Play and start your cultural treasure hunt!
