Children’s Museum needs your input on the Japanese House website
Our friends at the Boston’s Children’s Museum is seeking help in testing their website’s new pages about their Japanese House (“Kyo No Machiya”).
In the Boston Children’s Museum, there is one-of-a-kind exhibit called “Kyo No Machiya” Japanese house. This well-loved house has been a mainstay of our permanent exhibits and has bought a bit of Kyoto to generations of Boston families. Now, in our 100th year, we’re pleased to introduce a project that will bring the Kyo no Machiya to even more audiences around the world, and there will be more opportunities to get to know about this special house. This new project, the “Kyo no Machiya website”, will offer features like a virtual house tour, educational videos about the house and life in Kyoto, and a glimpse into our extensive Japanese collections. We hope that it will be a rich learning tool for people around the world who are interested in learning about Japan.
“When will this new website be available?”, you ask. Actually, that’s why we’re contacting you: we need your help. The website is nearly done but now needs the sort of test drive and constructive review. If you would be so kind as to take just 5-10 minutes out of your busy day and check out our beta site and a brief survey about it, we would be extremely grateful. The more people that take advantage of this sneak preview and complete the survey, the quicker we can put the finishing touches on this unique resource and make it available to families, students, educators and everyone in everywhere!
You’ll find the beta site here.
Thank you in advance for your time. We will be sure to let you know when this incredible new resource is officially complete.
