Carnegie Museum of Natural History Launches New Web Site

Carnegie Museum of Natural History has announced its redesigned Web site, accessible at

One of the major goals of the site was to better share information about the museum’s world-renown research and scientists. Visitors are able to better access stories, research, and collections information, in addition to visit planning and programming information.

The site launched is an interim step and a springboard for launching a fully redesigned and reorganized Web site sometime in late 2011. Following initiatives set in the 2010–2012 strategic plan, this interim design’s intent had several goals: highlight the museum’s scientific research; prominently present the museum’s internationally known collections; and integrate Powdermill Nature Reserve’s once-separate site into the overall museum’s framework.

The site design and framework were created by a team of Carnegie Museum of Natural History staff, led by Web & Communications Project Manager Cathy Klingler, with consulting provided by Pittsburgh-based multimedia design firm Wall-to-Wall Studios.

“I am very excited to be launching our improved Web site, which incorporates current technologies for sharing our research and programs with the public,” says Klingler. “I look forward to receiving feedback from staff and visitors over the next few months as we further develop and improve”
