What is digimuseo

Service

Digimuseo.fi is a service that allows you to enjoy the content of museums anywhere, anytime.

The aim is to make museum content available to consumers in a new and inspiring way in a digital environment. We want to be a user-friendly platform of choice for consumers and museums.

Digimuseo.fi develops and promotes museum activities, collaboration between museums, and the digital preservation and accessibility of cultural heritage. It brings museum services to consumers regardless of time or place and provides museums with the technology and related services to successfully operate in the digital environment.

The pilot version of Digimuseo.fi opened to the public on 18 May 2020 with the launch of the first services: special exhibitions, permanent exhibitions, guided exhibitions, visiting the museum with a friend, lectures and open discussions, excursions in one’s cultural environment, information services and museum pedagogy.

In Digimuseo.fi, you can explore exhibitions produced by the finalists for the Museum of the Year Award in 2020, the Pharmacy Museum and Qwensel House, the Helinä Rautavaara Museum and Sarka – the Finnish Museum of Agriculture, and – last but not least – the gems of the John Nurminen Foundation’s collection.

The launch of the Digimuseo.fi service on a fast schedule was made possible by committed partners Arilyn, Buena, Cisco, Giosg, Insite Finland and Preacom. We kindly thank them for their cooperation!

The museum is maintained by the social enterprise Yhteinen Perintö Oy, which is owned by FMA Creations Oy and the John Nurminen Foundation.
