The MACS (Museum of Contemporary Arts of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation) is a museum of contemporary art located on the UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Grand-Hornu, in Mons.
We had the honor to participate in the development of the MAC's website. The site supports the 3 main missions of the most important contemporary art showcase in Belgium: the creation of a collection, the scheduling of exhibitions and the organization of cultural events.
Facilitate the visit of the museum
The site presents a lot of different contents (exhibitions, events, public pages, editions, rich content pages...) to present the different aspects of the Museum. The main challenge was to facilitate the planning of the visit of the museum and to propose a smooth navigation experience through this mass of content.
The site is intended for different audiences. Users visit the website to plan their future visit, to buy tickets, to look for information after their visit, to consult the catalog of publications to buy lithographs or books. Our goal was to provide easy and simple access to the contents according to the different types of users.
- To support the visit of the exhibitions on site;
- To introduce the different aspects of the Museum in its environment (the Grand Hornu site);
- Make sure not to distort the original works in the display of the images;
