Why Museum Professionals Trust Argus

“Argus is contemporary and easy to use and allows us to publicly express our commitment to cultural heritage and care of the collections, which brings peace of mind to donors and funders, establishes credibility, and makes us relatable and even more fundable.”

Tracy Calogheros

CEO, The Exploration Place + Science Centre

“The ability to make our collection accessible via the Web, the efficient integration between the administrative back end and the public portal, and the ability to customize the application for our own specific needs…were the overriding factors in our choice to manage our collection with Argus.”

Caitlin Rumery

Associate Registrar / Collections Manager, CU Art Museum

“When we needed a new collections management system we went through a rigorous procurement process…Argus came out on top every time. They had great references, offered capabilities that would make both gallery staff and IT happy, and were well within budget.”

Shannon Parker

Curator of Collections, The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
