Overview

Museums.co is a simple, unified and highly engaging platform for discovering and purchasing quality artwork reproductions. Working directly with museums, galleries and artists' estates, Museums.co maintains a vast library of high resolution digital assets. Offering a turn-key solution for museum retailers, each institution can curate and print their own reproductions on demand. With Museums.co, institutions are offered an easy way to generate revenue from their most valuable assets: exhibitions and collections.

Beyond ecommerce, Museums.co was designed to offer an engaging and content rich experience inline with the mission of many of our partnered institutions.

Getting Started

Intuitive Recommendations

As visitors are encouraged to browse through an enormous collection of artwork, it was crucial to design a system that would swiftly guide an individual to a category of interest. By using natural language selectors and visual previews, users are able to quickly and easily filter artwork based on subject, medium and style.

Craftsmanship

Commitment to Quality

Vital to the success of the website, it was critical to highlight the quality of the product, differentiating Museums.co from a marketplace flooded with low quality 'poster prints'. By deconstructing the materials, processes and craftsmanship behind each reproduction, even the most discerning of buyers can be assured that they are purchasing a product of the highest quality.
