Ronald Reagan Museum
Project: Ronald Reagan Presidential Musuem - Simi Valley, CA
On February 7, 2011, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum unveiled 26,400 square feet of new exhibits to the public. Virginia-based Design and Production Inc.(D&P) accomplished the integration and fabrication of the new space with their usual impeccable attention to detail and insistence on visitor interaction. Specialists in “total service” production and installation of interpretive exhibits and media systems for museums and other institutional clients, D&P previously completed an equally impressive renovation for the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library.
Coinciding with President Reagan’s 100th birthday celebration and centennial festivities, the museum underwent a $15 million, 30,000-square-foot transformation that chronicles the 40th president’s life through interactive programming, captivating stories, and stunning artifacts. Visitors can examine pieces of the Berlin Wall, plan a State Dinner with an interactive touchtable, and even “co-star” alongside President Reagan in the movie, Knute Rockne: All American.
The space is visually stunning, with numerous theaters, interactive touch tables and hands-on AV-enabled activity areas throughout. Fourteen Digital Projection single-chip projectors, including dVision 30-1080p and iVision 30-1080p displays, deliver the theater and touch table content. The Museum also features 250 iPod Touch devices that augment patrons’ exhibit experiences with background information, an audio tour, and give visitors the ability to take photographs and capture video footage of their visit.
