About Tiqets

Learn what we are all about.

Tiqets is on a mission to make culture more accessible for everyone. Tiqets was founded by four experienced Dutch entrepreneurs who’d experienced the struggles of traveling first-hand. People had to wait in long lines to access top venues and couldn’t get tickets to popular attractions at the last minute -- discouraging people from trying to experience culture in the first place.

By providing a seamless booking experience all the way to entry, we get more people more frequently into both hidden gems and the top museums and attractions.

Since then, Tiqets has helped millions of people discover and embraces cultural experiences across the globe with instant, last-minute and mobile tickets. We’re proud to be the world’s most trusted museums and attractions ticketing platform on Trustpilot.

The company is headquartered in Amsterdam and now employs 200+ people worldwide, including in Amsterdam (HQ) as well as Seattle, Las Vegas, Orlando, Philadelphia, London, Copenhagen, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Vienna, Bangkok, Tokyo and Osaka. More information can be found on Tiqets.com.
