Tiqets, an innovative ticketing platform that’s revolutionising the way visitors find, buy, and use tickets for museums and attractions, has raised $60 million (approx €54 million) in Series C funding round recently. The funding round was led by Airbnb with continued support from prior lead investors HPE Growth Capital and Investion.
With this funding, the Amsterdam-based ticketing platform is planning to invest in initiatives that accelerate its growth, build richer experiences for customers, and create better tools for its venue partners — all in line with its vision of making culture more accessible for all.

For the uninitiated, Tiqets is one of the world’s largest and most trusted platforms for booking tickets for museums and attractions. To date, Tiqets has connected millions of people to thousands of venues in 60+ countries around the world.
