A flexible CMS enables creativity at the ARoS art museum

ARoS Aarhus Art Museum is known for its two permanent artworks - the five-meter-high 'Boy' and the colorful 'Your Rainbow Panorama' that floats above the roof of ARoS. In December 2011, ARoS launched a new website and an accompanying webshop. The shop is developed in uCommerce, integrated into the CMS; Umbraco, which is also used for the ARoS website. Umbraco is a flexible and user-friendly CMS that has allowed the museum to create and design pages that match each exhibition.

The search filter makes it easy to find relevant events

ARoS makes it easy for website visitors to find a specific event or exhibition through an advanced filtering function. In the calendar, visitors can filter based on age, date, one-time events, and exhibitions.

English site

ARoS relies on tourism and therefore needs an English site that functions on par with the Danish version. All static texts are easily translated into other languages using the smart language versioning feature built into the Umbraco CMS. The webshop will also be implemented in English by spring 2012.

A new video portal is the next step in development

Currently, a new video portal is being planned. Short film sequences will be uploaded via Vimeo, allowing the films to be exclusively viewed on aros.dk. This will further enhance the already vibrant and visually captivating website, making it even more inspiring.
