Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum – Grand Rapids, MI (1996-2016)
The “ground breaking, first” Presidential Museum to use interactive media and historic vignettes to engage visitors into the story line, setting the style trend for all other Presidential Exhibit Designs that have followed since 1997.
Another “first” was to create a replica Oval Office with a sound and light show that gave visitors the opportunity to experiencing a typical day in the Oval Office and to take a holographic tour of the White House. A variety of multimedia, computer-based and object-focused exhibits immerse the visitor and propel the stories in a 12,000sf exhibition.
