Background

The Children’s Museum is a non-profit, charitable museum located at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Following a $10M capital campaign in 2010 and 2011, which included the development of twelve new permanent galleries, a renovated Arts & Exhibition Centre, and the Buhler Welcome Centre addition, the Children’s Museum reopened to the public in celebration of its 25th birthday in 2011.

Visitors can hop aboard the authentic 1952 diesel locomotive and 1910 Pullman passenger coach, explore the five-storey tall Lasagna Lookout, test their perceptions in the giant Illusion Tunnel, perform water experiments in Splash Lab, and enjoy Tot Spot, which serves the needs of the museum’s smallest visitors.

The Opportunity

The Museum required a new site to reposition the new facility and include its new interactive exhibits. Events, travelling exhibitions, camps, birthday parts and school programming all now have a place on this engaging and mobile responsive website, which also features a registration database and seasonal online auction.
