Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) Launches New Website

February 28, 2017

SEATTLE, WA – Feb 28, 2017 – Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) today announced that it has launched a new website on mohai.org. The new website was designed to present the museum’s rich content in a more engaging and user-friendly way, while allowing for more multimedia integration.

“We can now beautifully and dynamically showcase MOHAI’s collections, exhibitions, and programming to a global audience,” said Leonard Garfield, MOHAI’s Executive Director. “Our hundreds of thousands of virtual visitors can easily navigate information and engage with the museum in many different ways. We are very grateful to our stellar MOHAI team and Seattle’s Civilization that made this new site a reality.”

The creative team designed the content in a way that dynamically complements the expansive physical museum experience. Likewise, the new website provides a foundation to integrate future media, applications, functions, and technologies.

MOHAI worked closely with Civilization, a Seattle-based firm, to design and develop the museum’s new website. The company iterated, “We’ve been huge fans of MOHAI for years and having the opportunity to work with such an important cultural institution is a true honor. In addition to the new site better serving the needs of their staff, it also better serves the public—there are new ways to engage with MOHAI’s impressive collections, exhibitions and community programming. In building the site and designing the experience and aesthetic, we took inspiration from the excitement of being at the museum.”

MOHAI is located at 860 Terry Ave. in Seattle. Exhibit gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
