Musement is an online platform for activities, tours, museums, shows and art events which launched in March 2014 [1] a service initially focused in Europe and then progressively expanding to the rest of the world.[2] Musement aggregates third-party activities and tickets for users to book online.[3] Tour suppliers have access to upload and manage various activities through the platform. The company's offers are available via website, iOS and Android. Once a customer books an activity, he or she receives a digital voucher or e-ticket for the reservation which can be saved on their device or printed. The company has four major competitors in this market, Viator (acquired by TripAdvisor), GetYourGuide, Berlin-based startup,[4] Klook, Hong Kong-based startup, and, a U.S.-based startup.[5] The headquarters are located in Milan.


Founded in mid-2013,[6] Musement is an Italian-based start-up that secured funding from 360 Capital Partners[7] (previously invested in YOOX, MutuiOnline), Italian Angels for Growth and other investors in September 2013. It closed $10 millions in Series B funding in 2016.[8] Musement acquired Triposo in October 2017.[9]

In September 2018 Musement was acquired by Tui Group,[10] largest leisure and travel company in Europe.
