Children’s Discovery Museum


Baytech designs new website for San Jose Institution.

If you were child raised in the Silicon Valley, have raised a child in the Silicon Valley, or are just a child at heart, you most likely harbor fond memories of the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. Since opening in June of 1990, the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose has welcomed over 7 million visitors. Its easily distinguishable and unique purple building signals the museum’s purpose: to serve the needs of children, families, and schools as a center for learning and discovery. Every year, their talented team of educators and designers respond to children’s diverse educational needs by bringing new interactive exhibits to life.

Knowing it was time to revamp their decade old website to better appeal to its core audience (mobile and on-the-go), Children’s Discovery Museum turned to Baytech for their web design and development needs. Baytech, taking into consideration the museum’s market and brand, was able to create a site that re-emphasized the core messages. The use of the iconic purple color scheme and other key design elements were used to project a more family friendly image in alignment with their key demographic. On top of a custom branded, redesigned website, a new responsive content management system was added in order for the museum to communicate information on the website much more efficiently.

Today, the new website features:

  • Customized website design
  • Volunteer Management System
  • Events Calendar System
