Pricing


Our pricing is simple and transparent - but also flexible.

From years working in the sector, we know that every museum is different, with different complexities around their collections, web pages and media. But we also know that getting a sense of "how much it costs" is one of the first questions that we get asked.

We offer three tiers, which can each be built upon via Add-ons if you need. So if you're a small, modest museum with a really complicated collection, that's fine.

  • Tier 1 is a great baseline for smaller museums. It's cheaper, and suits a museum with a smaller collection and less complex content and data.
  • Tier 2 allows for more records and support, and adds features like zoomable images and maps for object records.
  • Tier 3 suits a more complex scenario, with more collections items, more complexity around those items including the use of authority records, and a bespoke design.

The prices and features for Tiers 1 & 2 are fixed, but they offer lots of flexibility in combination with add-ons (for example, if you want to deliver many more collection records, or get some more support). The setup and support price given for Tier 3 is typical, based on the collection features shown, but we can work out exactly what you do and don't need in conversation.

The most important thing to remember is that we're keen to fit your needs. If you're in any doubt at all, get in touch and we'll arrange a call or meeting with you and get to know your requirements - and will then be able to give you a fully transparent quotation to get you up and running on the platform.
