    Nice, extensive overview, although it sounds somewhat partisan to me. Having spent a lot of time on various Teyler sites, I can recall how particularly the 2002 site was an absolute pig to work with – the horrors of an absolute choice between either a purely flash-driven or a barebones plain text site still were unnecessary at the time.
    And although that’s been remedied since, it points to the traditional achilles’ heel of Teyler’s web efforts. The challenges for the coming years are not so much in the museological approach (in which Teyler has traditionally done quite well), but rather in technical know-how and innovation (where its track record is decidedly less rosy). For instance, the instruments site is a wonderful effort, but is marred by olf-fashioned interaction design; and most of Teyler’s online presence is still not suited for mobile use *in* the museum itself.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your comment. You are absolutely right that it is a challenge to keep up with fast chaning technologies to make sure websites such as the Instruments site based on Flash technology, don’t run outdated in software and/or interaction design. However, as the internet and technology is ever changing, this is inevitable to happen at some point. Still, we are working on keeping-up with our online platforms on a daily basis. There’s wifi in the museum and the new website we are currently developing will be user-oriented and suitable for mobile, aiming at better connecting the onsite and online museum experience. Until then I hope you keep enjoying wandering one of our museum sites every now and then! 🙂
