Best Overall Museum Web Site

Making the Modern World Online - Stories about the lives we've made

Institution: The Science Museum, (London, UK)

Judges' Comments

"Making the Modern World" is a robust demonstration of how museum artifacts can be offered online to engage audiences in an innovative learning experience.

... a highly interactive site that gives the user many options for shaping their experience and makes good use of new technologies (I especially liked the use of rich media). It is deep and provides interdisciplinary learning. I was fascinated and could have stayed for hours just poking around and exploring.

Great site. Funducational and very informative. Something for everyone! The whole family will be fighting for computer time!
