OHIO HISTORY CONNECTION

OHIO HISTORY CONNECTION

 

OHC places a renewed focus on making Ohio’s cultural and natural heritage more visible and accessible. By bringing collections to the museum from a remote location, the master plan ‘connects’ Ohio’s treasures and makes them core to the visitor experience.  Locating the new entrance at the knuckle of the exhibit building and collection addition, visitors link the wealth and diversity of cultural heritage that informs the adjacent didactic exhibits.

With a focus on true connection – visitors accustomed to digital experiences are conversely greeted by an approach that enables staff to engage visitors with collections in entirely new ways – creating open-ended explorations.

 
 

“Working with Walt over the past ten years has been a true pleasure. He completely understands and defines museum design best practice. He has the rare ability to contextualize and simplify the most complex problems down to their most basic elements.”
