Edward Hand Medical Heritage Foundation, now known as Lancaster Medical Heritage Museum, is a small museum in Lancaster, PA that showcases over 11,000 medical and historical artifacts. They approached us with the goals of finishing the logo redesign they had started and sharing their work with the world through an easy-to-use virtual museum.
Their website was also built in an outdated framework that made updates difficult and time consuming. The staff needed an open source solution that would help them quickly catalog and share their thousands of artifacts online with people beyond Lancaster County.
We then set to work developing a new website that would be user-friendly for both visitors and staff. The new site integrated seamlessly with the existing archiving software, preventing the museum from re-cataloging over 11,000 artifacts. Most importantly, the new site allows donations through PayPal to keep the museum running through funding from its visitors.
“Our new website is instrumental in transforming our museum’s image in the community. This wouldn’t have been possible without the expertise of the Tower Marketing team!”-Hannah Lerew, Executive Director, Edward Hand Medical Museum
