Interesting web navigation at a Smithsonian site

The National Museum of African American History and Culture (also known as NMAAHC–what an awkward acronym!), which is currently in search of an architect to design its new building on the Mall, has a pretty sweet website. Check out the web-style navigation at the top. Concepts are connected to one another by threads–click one concept and it takes you to the corresponding article, shifting the map’s center to a new area. Furthermore, each article is tagged, so you can finish reading their article on James Brown and hop to other articles tagged with “music.” It’s a little clumsy, but nonetheless it’s a fun, sort of Wikipedia-ish way to explore.
