Roosevelt Timeline – CMS Kiosk – AMNH 2012

For the 154th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt’s birth, the American Museum of Natural History embarked on a complete renovation of its original memorial built several decades earlier. The site, which encompasses the main façade of the Museum overlooking Central Park, also includes the main entrance of the museum and an entire floor of exhibitions dedicated to Roosevelt’s legacy in conservation. To celebrate one of the original founders of the institution, the Museum created a year-long event, aligned with the renovation of the exhibitions and the creation of new content.

As part of the new galleries, we created an interactive timeline that features the life and legacy of Theodore Roosevelt. It was an ambitious project in several ways. It was an arduous work of research that included not only the unveiling of archival material, but the production of a series of video interviews with notable figures in the world of governmental conservation. It was also a technically challenging project, enabled by web technologies that connected all the content to the digital platform, something rarely achieved in large museums.
