Explore the Collection with your smartphone

We are excited to announce that you can now use the Smartify app in the Museum.

Smartify is a free app which helps people make meaningful connections with art. Using image recognition technology, the app instantly identifies works of art by scanning them on your smartphone. Visitors to the Museum can scan any of the paintings or sculptures on display to further explore our permanent Collection. Read more about the works, learn about the artists and create a personal collection of your favourite images to keep or share with the Smartify community.

Smartify is a social enterprise supported by the British Government agency InnovateUK and the European Union. The Foundling Museum joins a host of global partner venues including the Wallace Collection, National Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museo Correr in Venice.

To use Smartify in the Museum, open the app and hold your phone up to a painting or sculpture to instantly identify it. Detailed information about the work will then appear on screen. The app is available for download on Android and IOS via the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Download today and start exploring.
