Welcome, culture lover!

Whether you came here for inspiration, to work on your research, looking for your next coffee mug design or just to snoop around, we hope you will find what you need somewhere amongst the millions of objects we host here.

Our material comes from all over Europe and the scope of the collections is really quite astonishing. Our aim is help you find your way round so you discover treasures of your own.

Over the last few years, we’ve been expanding our collections and learning more and more about them, and what you want to do with them. Now it’s time to change a few things and make some improvements to our service!

We’re trying out a new version of Europeana Collections. We are working hard to improve your experience here and make it as easy as possible for you to find the information you are looking for. So we’ll probably ask you to help us by answering some questions. Your answers will be really helpful to us, so please do take a moment to give us your thoughts. Thanks!

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy your cultural journey with us.
