Plimoth Patuxet Museums Launches New Website
New features, design elements, improved usability and engagement strengthen the Museum’s online presence
Plimoth Patuxet Museums is delighted to announce the launch of their new website, plimoth.org. The site was designed to place the user experience front and center.
Plimoth.org emphasizes user experience through streamlined, intuitive navigation and responsive design. Users of the site will be able to easily access information about visiting, purchase tickets, find event information and access collection information. The new website grew out of foundational research and follows best practices in web design and user experience principles.
The website was designed in collaboration with Dative, a Cape Cod based award-winning firm that has expertise in mission-driven design and production. “Our website serves as a wonderful resource to the Museum's community of users, providing immediate, easy-to-navigate access to information,” said Ellie Donovan, Executive Director, Plimoth Patuxet Museums. "We want the new site to present our audiences with a vibrant design and user-friendly online experience. With that in mind, Plimoth.org will inspire visits and help our audiences move seamlessly as they learn, plan, and participate in a virtual way.”
An emphasis of the website is reinforcing the new brand identity of Plimoth Patuxet Museums introduced in 2020.
“This is a crucial piece in our marketing and communications efforts and in advancing institutional goals. I couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with our audiences,” said Rob Kluin, Plimoth Patuxet’s Director of Marketing & Communications.
While the launch of the new Plimoth.org is a major milestone, the Museum has planned for continual updates and improvements as technology and best practices evolve.
