National Gallery in Prague and Kaplicky Centre in cooperation with MUSOFT organized the exhibition of one of the most talented Czech architects Jan Kaplicky. 

MUSOFT’s  Collection Management System called MUSEION has already digitalized and saved more than 50.000 of Kaplicky's works which were available for anyone to enjoy during the exhibition. MUSOFT has also created a database system and a website for Jan Kaplicky Foundation.

Due to the MUSOFT all the exhibited items had QR codes on them so everyone could get more information about Kaplicky's art works.
