What can I buy?

Because we know museums sometimes need exhibits for many years, sometimes just for months, you can now buy Darwin on a rolling monthly or rolling annual basis. If you have a fixed life exhibition you can also buy Darwin for a set period of time. And finally, you can buy a permanent perpetual licence if you wish.

Each subscription comes with a free 14 day trial. You can cancel them at any time; your subscription will stop at the end of your current billing cycle (i.e. the end of your subscription’s month or year)

All subscriptions require your device to be online when Darwin is launched, in order to check that the subscription is active.

(If you need a specific subscription that is not listed below e.g. 3 licences for 18 months please get in touch and we can easily accommodate you.)

Getting other companies to build your exhibit

Design agencies, consultancies etc. are free to use Darwin to build and deploy exhibits for museums, galleries (and anyone else who requires it)  but please note that their clients must have a licence or subscription to show that work to the general public. e.g. if DigiSmith Ltd uses Darwin to create an exhibit for The Museum of Tea, then that Museum must have a valid Darwin licence.

We have already had plenty of positive feedback on our Darwin-based tours, which greatly enhance our visitors’ experience of the building and its history. Anna Bright

Director, Shire Hall Historic Courthouse
