Welcome, culture lover!

Searching for a favourite old painting? Doing some research or writing a school paper? Looking for an inspiration for your next coffee mug design? Fancy learning something new? Whatever the reason for your visit to Europeana, welcome!

Delve into Europe's largest online collection of art, culture and science. Europeana Collections brings you material from the famous and the not-so-famous (but always fascinating) libraries, museums, galleries and archives of Europe.

Books and manuscripts, photos and paintings, sculpture and sheet music, videos and sound recordings, diaries and maps - they’re all here. No need to travel the continent, either physically or virtually!

Explore, discover, watch, listen, read, download... Enjoy!

Now why not try out the Europeana Art History Collections or Europeana Music Collections? We also have custom resources for researchers and cultural developers/innovators (this is where you can find our APIs), as well as a range of virtual exhibitions and a blog.

And if you’re still hungry for more, you can get your daily dose of culture on Facebook, Twitter, Medium, Google+, Tumblr and Pinterest.
