The site structure didn’t make sense to users, the layout was confusing, and the graphics were small.

The new VHS website is clean, inviting, and attractive.  vahistorical.org is now responsive and has a better platform for displaying our collections.

The VHS has a huge array of excellent digital resources, which are now grouped together in one place for the first time in the Virginia History Explorer. The online exhibition, The Story of Virginia, now reflects the physical visit by featuring attractive imagery and enhanced audio and video. A searchable calendar with filters now makes it easy for visitors to see what events are happening at the VHS.
