We tell the story of America's first president in the museum's signature theater Washington's War Tent, which features George Washington's actual war marquee.
In the immersive media experience Tearing Down George, visitors walk through Bowling Green circa 1776, amidst a wild mob tearing down the gilded statue of King George III of Great Britain.
We shot the mob and a specially engineered green statue on green screen, then created the Bowling Greene 1776 cityscape, as well as the King George statue in VFX.
Two object theaters - The Price of Victory and Yorktown, tell the story of key events of the Revolutionary War through rare artifacts.
The Battlefield Theater is a dramatic, immersive media experience that puts the audience in the middle of The Battle of Brandywine.
We filmed the battle recreations near the site of the actual battle, in what is now Coatesville, PA.
A number of pocket theaters provide big-picture video stories that connect the various themes running through the exhibits.
The Oneida Theater tells the story of the Oneida people's crucial role in the Revolutionary War.
Lifecast sculptures of seven Oneida characters debate whether to side with the British Crown or the American Rebels, as the dramatic Revolutionary conflicts play out on the wrap-around screen.
