We believe that access to a shared heritage – whether in music, books, films, art or social history - makes people’s lives richer. Our main website Europeana Collections aims to make this valuable content more accessible and more beneficial to more and more people.
We transform the world with culture. We build on Europe’s rich cultural heritage and make it easier for people to use for work, learning or pleasure. Our work contributes to an open, knowledgeable and creative society.
