Digital curation for A Living Museum

The Museum of Jewish Heritage - helping children become heirloom curators

The Living Museum program turns children into museum curators with a self-made exhibition.

Student artifact with label.

This tool leaves a lasting impression that can be shared with friends and family even after the event has concluded. The software enables students to document artifacts from objects in their family, and their teachers to construct a complete exhibition sub-site.

Teacher interface  for organizing an exhibition

In addition to scaffolding the exhibition for the children, Think Design devised interfaces for their teachers and museum administrators. We kept site layout, page flow, and data as simple as possible, with streamlined workflows for the three user groups.
