Located on the site of Eisenhower’s boyhood home, the Eisenhower Presidential Library tells the story of the extraordinary life and legacy of the only 5-star General who became President of the United States. Located in Eisenhower’s hometown of Abilene, Kansas, the vast holdings of the Library consist of approximately 26 million pages of historical records and papers, 335,000 photographs, 768,000 feet of original motion picture film, and 70,000 artifacts.
Originally opened in 1954, the presidential library recently underwent a comprehensive renovation to modernize the overall visitor experience. Phase Shift Consulting was engaged by the exhibit design firm, PRD, to design innovative media elements that supported the stories of each exhibit in a compelling way.
Key multi-media elements included a D-Day theater with immersive video, interactive touch tables, and circular projection table. Phase Shift worked closely with the project team to not only design and document the AV systems hardware, but to also coordinate power, cooling and infrastructure requirements in the space.
