Belgrade City Museum is an institution consisting of a number of smaller museums placed in separate buildings throughout the city. It also has large collections of artifacts from the prehistoric period until the modern era.
We were requested to create a multilingual web portal, which would present all the museums belonging to the Museum of the City of Belgrade in the most accesible and effective way, its rich collections, exhibition and other educational activities, and be easy to maintain by the Museum's staff. Another requirement was the customer's wish for the website to be a kind of archive of all events in the Museum that could be searched by year. Also, the Museum shop is planned as a special section of the site.
Graphic & Web Design Solution
The complex requirements and a wide variety of data to be shown led to making several types of pages with a greater number of assigned fields, in order to get, as an ultimate product, pages with nice structured data, easily maintainable. Search of archived pages is done by selecting a specified year from the combo boxes, thereby achieving space saving. An advanced search of museum objects by their attributes was envisaged to be provided subsequently.
One of the requirements was the integration with some newsletter service.
After commissioning, website visits recorded an increase of over 20%.
