New Theme: Museum

Museum is a light, clean theme that showcases your photographs, drawings, or illustrations.

We’re excited to introduce Museum, a new free theme!

museum-main

Created by WordPress.com’s own Kelly Dwan and Mel Choyce, Museum is crafted to showcase your best photographs, drawings, or illustrations. Featuring elegant, museum-inspired typography and ample room for your images, Museum pays special attention to category and media attachment pages to help your collections shine. Image posts are organized into collections by adding them to the same category so you can proudly show them off. Media attachment pages are also designed with care, displaying all of your media’s details in a thoughtful manner and allowing you to link to individual attachment pages with pride. Check out an example!

Learn more about Museum at the Theme Showcase, or preview it by going to Appearance → Themes.

    I switched to museum a few days ago. Not particularly for the images, but I liked the clean look, good typefaces, and use of colour. I prefer a scroll down home page (using the more tag) but I can live with the photo rich home page as the individual posts look good.

    I like it. Nice theme, so congrats to the developers.

        Thank you.

        And a Q for WP (not you unless you can answer it!)

        How does the saturated red and red highlight work for people with red/green (ie colours look grey) colour blindness?

          Hi there!

          To answer your question, the contrast with the text would still be ok in that scenario. Photoshop actually has a built in color blindness tool that we can test with.

          Also, the absence of seeing red doesn’t necessarily mean grey. The real problem is layering red and green on top of each other. As long as you don’t put the two together, you’re generally okay.🙂

          I hope that helps!

      I know what you think about. I started using “Spun” few days after it’s release and until now I’m quite happy about it. I find it hard to change though, I already got used to it… but this one might be something for me…

    Great looking theme, if my blog was more image heavy I’d go for it.

    It might come in handy for I am planning to launch a photography blog starting next year. I already tried it with my current blog and I was amazed how expressive the theme is! The images come to life in a very spectacular manner and it really showcase the photographs wonderfully. It looks modern and uncluttered but warm and lively at the same time. Kudos to wordpress and to the creator.

    As you have learned during this class, WordPress Themes become outdated with technology changes happening frequently. So, a good rule of thumb is to change Themes from time to time to have the latest technology capabilities at your finger tips. This may need to be done every one to two years. Here is a new theme to showcase photographs, drawings or illustrations.
