New Website Launched

The new site has a contemporary design and layout and is fully responsive to display on tablets and mobile devices, making it easier for visitors to get information on the go.

New functions include an events calendar which will display all public events held in the building, and also include details of Gadderie exhibitions planned over the next year. Smaller exhibitions and displays will also be listed on the new website.

Marketing Officer, Emma Miller, said “The way people access information online has changed so much since we launched the original website when the Museum and Archives building opened nearly 9 years ago. We’ve updated the look and layout of the site, keeping all the information that people will be looking for and adding in a few more things which we hope folk will find useful. The website is well used with over 2500 unique visitors every month and I hope that the improvements we have made will be well received.”

The new website has been designed by local firm, NB Communication.
