Europeana is a website that works with thousands of European archives, libraries and museums to share cultural heritage for enjoyment, education and research. On its website it is possible to find material of all kinds.
We just have to go to europeana.eu and start enjoying with access to millions of books, music, works of art and more, with sophisticated search and filter tools to help us find what we are looking for.
We can register on the web (it’s free) to save the articles we like the most and create our own galleries, which makes it possible to have a personalized museum with everything that impresses us the most.
They have exhibitions, galleries and online blogs, always with the aim of informing and inspiring, and they encourage you to subscribe to their monthly newsletter so you never miss their editorial updates and the latest news.
