Customer reviews:
“Do not go to the Vatican's museums without seeing this app before.” – Manuel Seda

“We used this app for the Sistine chapel. With the dramatic music and close up pics to enhance the narrative, I was moved to tears hearing about the history and meaning of each art piece” – Dghbxruojj

“Simply the best app for the Vatican Museums. There might even be another app more complete, but not as good as this one. Its breathtaking!!!“ – V.M.N.A

Image recognition for museums
Download the Unofficial guide to the Vatican Museums App, launch it by tapping on "Scan" and frame the artwork as if you wanted to take a photo. The artwork is immediately recognized, just like magic, without the need for an internet connection.

Photos, audios and videos reinvented audio-guides, giving them the feel of “Cinema” with movie-style music and narration by American voice actors dramatically enhancing the storytelling process.
The most important artworks allows visitors to be involved by listening to audio guides and a photo gallery to comment on the artwork.

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED website has received considerable recognition and international awards during recent years and has been featured in several magazines and TV shows such as:
- The Oprah Winfrey Show
- BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation)
- UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)
- Venice department of the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage
- RAI (Italian public Television)
- RSI (Swiss public Television)
- Winner of SMAU Mob App Award 2012
- Yahoo!
