Launch of the Patrons New App, Patrum!

Discover.  Contribute.  Join.

Offered to everyone, free of charge, Patrum is an exciting new platform for art lovers

Download here: 

Patrum is the first ever cultural institution app bringing together instant chat technology, crowdsource fundraising, and online community building is now live.  Start conversations with art lovers from all over the world, donate in just seconds to any of the artworks at the Vatican Museums in need of restoration funding, and learn from expert curators in real time.   Patrum is your connection to engaging deeply and instantly with the art in the Vatican Museums, revolutionizing the accessibility and understanding of one of the most famous collections in the world.


On Patrum, one can:

  • Discover the Vatican Museums collection behind the scenes
  • Receive daily updated “in the know” Vatican Museums news
  • Comment on your favorite works of art
  • Interest your favorite works of art and news to receive tailored alerts
  • Chat fellow art lovers
  • Donate to restoration projects
  • Instantly chat Patrons staff curators
  • Connect with current Patrons (or become one!)

We are particularly excited about the chat functionality of Patrum.  Users will be able to start conversations with others who have “interested” the same works of art as they have, exchanging ideas and inspiration with an entire community of art lovers.  Who knows what little tidbit about the Sistine Chapel you will uncover by tapping into the collective knowledge of a global community of art lovers!  Speaking of people…Users of Patrum will be able to make their own profile,  and everyday different Patrons will be featured on the app.  This way any new user on the app can learn about what inspires others to become Patrons, and feel welcome to join.

So go get going, make your profile, meet other Patrons, learn about some of your favorite works of art, donate to restoration projects, and start joining in on all the conversations happening now!
