Museums and the Web 2003: Best of the Web
Recognizing achievement in heritage Web site design

Best Museum Web Site

And the Winner is:

Theban Mapping Project

Judges Comments:

Great great work. Very well structured and designed. The combination of innovative interfaces, interesting topics and useful information is at its best.

It really gives an idea about the architecture of the depicted places.

A beautiful, indepth, and innovative web site. The Atlas of the Valley of the Kings is phenomenal and a very exciting innovation!

The site gives full reign to the web's multimedia capabilities and still remains technically well executed. The multimedia files load quickly and are high quality. The search engine is very user friendly, providing thematic choices and very specific prescribed topics for the researcher. The articles have nice hyperlinks to images within the text and the printable Tomb Drawings are a very cool feature. (The only part that gave me a problem was the keyword search because I was limited by search category. I would like to be able to search the entire site by keyword.)

I love the interactive map. This Web site showed me a new way to explore a somewhat familar subject and inspired me to learn more.
