National Museum of the Pacific War
This media-rich exhibition takes you through the frontlines and home front, as well as the political tactics and military strategies of World War II’s battle for the Pacific.
A five-minute orientation film experience shown on a 20’ curved LED video wall gives an overview of the War in the Pacific. Among the signature presentations are a dynamic three-screen presentation that depicts the events of the brutal, yet pivotal, Battle of Midway. Show-controlled lighting effects and an original music score intensify this dramatic story.
To interpret the raging battle of Tarawa, BPI developed a layered audio file of the amphibious landing that captures the chaos of war and allows the visitor to enter the scene. The exhibit features the Pilot House from the USS Denver and the CIC (Combat Information Center) from the USS Hadley. These mysterious instrument rooms come to life with authentic dialogue, intense sound effects, lighting, and video.
Multiple map tables present large-format animations depicting the tactics of some of the fiercest battles ever fought. “Top Secret” file folders slide open to reveal archival photographs and footage that enhance the battle.
In the newly renovated Nimitz gallery BPI produced a series of challenging strategy interactives where guests need to refuel a battleship and determine naval battle tactics.
