Project Overview

The most visited museum in the country, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is home to our shared space history. We built them a three-in-one experience that allows every visitor to follow their own curiosity through the museum collection—before, during, and long after their visit.

Our biggest task was integrating their 60,000 artifact database across three platforms: a website, a mobile app, and a massive 200-square-foot touch wall installed in their astronomical entry hall. Now visitors can explore stories, view the collection, and curate their visit on any or across all three.
