The Medal of Honor Museum project is one that we are extremely proud of. We knew immediately that this was a project that would be close to our hearts and would instill pride and accomplishment in our entire team.

The goal of the museum was to reflect the character traits of a medal of honor recipient, so we knew this would be the guideline for our overall design process. Throughout the design phase, we sectioned the museum into focused areas of patriotism, citizenship, integrity, courage, sacrifice and commitment. You will find information pertaining to each of these traits within their specified areas inside the museum.

Our design focused on creating a timeline of wars and educating museum guests on individuals who have received the medal of honor. We worked with historian, David Currey, to gather the content for the museum and that content directly influenced the design of the exhibits. Our team worked onsite at the museum for months creating the many scenes that are featured throughout the museum.

Method-1 did all of the museum’s interior construction to include the platforms, case work, graphic production and scenic development. Our team did a large portion of the lighting and AV, exhibit walls and interactive platforms.

This was a project that reached across many work groups and many influences. It is a complete success and is now being enjoyed by visitors from all over the world.
