“We want the website to be as exciting and rewarding as when you walk through our front doors for the first time,” said Abbi Ludwig, Director of Marketing at Port Discovery Children’s Museum. “The new website better showcases the grandeur of Port Discovery as well as the fun, educational and interactive experiences visitors can enjoy when they explore the Museum. By helping would-be visitors and our longtime fans better understand what they can see, do and experience at Port Discovery, we are confident our improved website will help our audience make the decision to visit and learn through play.”

The new website features category-leading design elements such as interactive animations — built on a Drupal Content Management System.

“We’re excited to showcase the site and get Port Discovery’s visitors interacting with it,” said Matt McDermott, Creative Director at idfive. “This website delivers an engaging platform that reflects the same experience that happens within the museum. We focused on creating something that was both easy and usable for families and visitors, as well as encouraging community involvement and access.”
