More than 400 large museum's websites use Drupal for their CMS. Why is that? First of all, because Drupal is a bit less expensive than other CMSs that are available on the market. Instead of investing in licenses, with Drupal you invest just in the development and in the actual work that has been brought to the website.
Secondly, because Drupal is far more stable than other similar systems. You want a reliable website on which your visitor can rely on for their information.
The need for a change
With exhibition constantly changing, museums need websites that have this functionality and that won't make you strive for changes. All information can be easily changed and your website will no longer be an enigma.
One of our personal favorites when it comes to museum websites that were built with Drupal is Louvre.
The Louvre's website was completely changed using Drupal as CMS. Maybe the most famous museum in the world, Le Louvre is visited by more than 9 million visitors per year. Apart from being rather impressive from a visual point of view, Drupal gave it the flexibility to showcase works of art and collections, switch languages, provide a filterable calendar, an online store and the option for ticket sales.
And this is just a small part of what Drupal can do.
Peeps, we should do a Drupal museum...that would be huuuuge!
