The Museum WordPress theme was created so photographers, illustrators, and other image heavy creatives could showcase their work. The theme by Mel Choyce and Kelly Dawn has a light and airy feel, opting for white space over the tightly packed grids we’ve been seeing lately. The really killer feature however is they extended attachments to include taxonomies, allowing you to give the same level of organization you would with posts and pages.
- Taxonomies on attachments allows you to organize your images in the same way you organize posts, a definite plus for artists.
- Clean, well thought-out responsive layouts.
- Attachment taxonomies really should be a plugin feature since you’re kind of locked into the theme if you want to upgrade.
- Lack of text focus isn’t great for SEO, so what you gain in image taxonomies you lose in excerpt hinting.
