The Story

This is the first ever app for the Vatican Museums, and the only cultural institution app to harness the combined power of crowdsourcing and online community building.  Patrum will usher in a totally innovative approach to cultural heritage protection and learning. On Patrum, one can:

  • Discover the Vatican Museums behind the scenes
  • Receive “in the know” Vatican Museums news
  • Comment on your favorite works of art
  • Share your interests with your friends
  • Chat fellow art lovers
  • Join chat forums
  • Donate to restoration projects
  • Instantly access Patrons staff about a restoration project
  • Connect with current Patrons (or become one!)


To download the app:

On our Event page here on Crowdrise you can see all of the current projects that still need funding.
