SIMAP encourages museum visitors to actively participate in a permanent negotiation of artistic meanings. In this way, both the content and the way it is delivered are permanently improved by the museum curators.

To help them achieve this goal visitors are encouraged to share their feelings about the displayed artworks, by using the TAG and COMMENT functionalities.

Based on tags and comments, museum specialists periodically adjust the content delivered with each item in the collection.

The first institution to use the SIMAP application is the Palace of Culture in Iasi, re-opened for tourists in 2016, after complex restorations. The pilot application integrates thirty representative art works of some great Romanian painters from the modern period.

To use the application please install it from Google Play or App Store.
