Improve your visitor experience with the Smartify app

We're always thinking of ways we can make our galleries safer. One of the ways you can improve your museum experience and make social distancing easier is by downloading Smartify before your visit. When you get here, simply hold your phone up to an artwork. The app will recognise the image and you can read about it on your phone. No more standing close to people to read the labels!

In addition to this, audio guides are available through the app for many of our exhibitions (please check the exhibition web page for audio guide availability).

You can also save your favourite artworks on Smartify, allowing you to go back and look at them after your visit. Download the app today.
