The system consists of two modules - public website and closed admin panel.

The site has an improved structure and navigation due to cross-linking. The fans of cultural life get into a special section with the information on the excursions, programmes and costs. Now the users can schedule a visit to the museum and buy an electronic ticket in a few clicks. The announcements of exhibitions, cultural events and news about museum life are published in separate sections. The visitors can take a virtual tour of the halls and view an online exposition from anywhere in the world. A special section provides the opportunity to know more about the museum and its history. The museum branches received their own pages. There are several forms on the website: newsletter subscription, feedback and donation forms.

The admin panel has a simple, user-friendly interface. The system allows to use it as an organizer and content management panel. New materials are added through a special constructor with built-in parameters so as not to disturb the website's interface. The system of user differentiation based on assigned role provides additional protection of the resource against accidental or incorrect actions.
