Who’s Using It

Australian Centre for the Moving Image

“By investing in GLAMkit we are confident that ACMI will be able to achieve its bold new vision - not only online, but also driving content throughout its future exhibitions and experiences. We were attracted to the mission-led commitment to open source and the GLAM sector that GLAMkit represents, alongside its focus on usability, flexibility, and architecture.” Seb Chan,
Chief Experience Officer, ACMI

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

“With its robust infrastructure, GLAMkit allows us to integrate with SFMOMA’s existing systems, implement our Design Studio’s gorgeous new design, and provide a platform for the breadth and depth of content we’re known for.” Keir Winesmith,
Head of Web and Digital Platforms, SFMOMA

World-class events

No other CMS handles events as well as GLAMkit. Events can be any shape or size, and repeat or be one-off. Big events like Exhibitions and Festivals can contain smaller events like tours and workshops. And all this can be integrated with ticket sales systems like Eventbrite and Tessitura.

Your collection, your way

Every museum thinks differently about its collection. That's why GLAMkit's online collection uses a flexible plugin system, so you can choose what shape your collection is, whether it's art and artists, moving image, books, or paleontology, or a combination, GLAMkit's got you covered. We've integrated with Emu, Vernon and other collections management systems.

Cultural-sector-friendly asset library

"GLAMkit contains a user friendly library for organising, browsing, and selecting images, audio, and video assets. Synchronise with Digital Asset Management systems like NetX or Canto, while GLAMkit handles captions, rights and web-safe colorspace conversion."

Customization Services

GLAMkit is open source and free to use for museums as-is, but if there’s any extra‑special stuff you need, write our team an email and we’ll work with you to make it happen. We made GLAMkit after all.
