As of November 2006, the e-landscape has changed plenty on the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh website. The central site has been under heavy construction for most of this year; and now, with building complete, visitors are being treated to wonderful snapshots of what makes Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh truly unique. A special treat: The site’s new calendar offers up-to-date information on what’s happening at all four Carnegie Museums—exhibitions, classes, films, lectures, musical performances, and special member events. It can be searched by audience, by museum, by event type, or by dates.

Highlights of the site include a homepage that’s always changing: Animated post cards at the top of the page are constantly showing what’s new at the museums; a yellow note card, updated daily, boasts how many things there are to do that day; and a “Visitor Badge” gives visitors the chance to view the site from their own perspective: Member, Adult, Family w/kids, Teen/Young Adult, and Educator. Another highlight: an interactive timeline of Carnegie Museums’ storied history (click on “History” under ABOUT US).

The theme of this brand new Carnegie Museums web experience: Never the same place twice. So how can you visit just once? Just like the four Carnegie Museums, the new site really is never the same place twice. also features a new member center called “MyMuseums,” where members can manage their membership account and non-members can sign up to receive information tailored to their interests. And in the main Membership section of the site, members can always check to see what kinds of special Member events and offers are coming up.

“ We wanted to create a central website that would package all the wonderful things our four museums are—for our members, and for the many people who may be visiting our site for the first time,” says Carnegie Museums President David Hillenbrand. “Now, all of our audiences can go to one place to find information about our incredible resources.” Visitors can go as deep into the Carnegie Museums online resources as they like: Throughout the site, visitors are cross-referenced to the websites of the four Carnegie Museums to get even more information on topics ranging from Collections to Research & Discovery.

Carnegie Museums worked with Pittsburgh’s Wall-to-Wall Studios to create its new site. Check it out today at
