The growing number of cultural heritage collections published as Linked Data has given rise to a vast source of collection objects to explore. To provide an experience which goes beyond traditional search, the links from objects to terms from structured vocabularies can be used to create new paths to explore. We present INVENiT, a semantic search system which leverages these paths for result diversification and clustering. Users can freely explore the collection, but are also able to contribute their knowledge by annotating collection objects. The added information is directly incorporated in the search results. The demo can be found at
