Chelmsford City Council is pleased to announce that on Tuesday 26 September it launched a brand new, exciting website for the City Museums. The website will give an immersive and new insight into the fantastic activities, events and displays that are held at the Chelmsford Museums. The new site, which reflects the big transformation planned to occur soon, demonstrates a fresh, modern and engaging look and feel.
There is now much more information available online, including access information meaning that visits can be planned and a great ‘What’s On’ page, showcases the activities that are happening every week at the Museum.
The public can now access images and information on key and important artefacts that the Museum very carefully look after; zoom in on the detail of paintings or objects, such as ‘The Last Stand at Gundamuck’ by William Barnes Wollen or a fossil of a fish from the Jurassic Period.
So much is happening at the Museum that the new website will be a portal for everyone to not only access information, but to support the service through volunteering opportunities or to gain resources for schools and other organisations who want to enhance their learning and engagement in history, science or technology.
Changes made to the site are now reflecting the £2m Heritage lottery Project development which is happening at Chelmsford Museum, Oaklands Park, Moulsham Street. This project includes new exhibition rooms, improvements to the park, additional parking and a café. These exciting improvements will open spring 2019.
Councillor Julia Jeapes, Cabinet Member for Leisure said: “We are so pleased to be able to announce the launch of the new website. “In a time when the internet plays such a big part in our lives, it is so important that the council websites are as exciting and engaging as possible- and all this work goes towards that.” “I really hope that the public enjoy using the site and make the most of it.”
