Try Smartify

We’re often asked how Smartify works. The best way to find out is by downloading the free app and holding your smartphone up to an artwork!

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to find out which museums and galleries you can use the app in. The most up-to-date list of venues will always be available on the ‘Explore’ screen within the app.

But for those who haven’t yet had a chance to visit a “Smartified” museum yet, we’ve copied below a few personal favourites from London, just to give you a taster.

First download the app on iOS or Android. Then bring up this page on your desktop. Scan the art, uncover the story ;)
