Projects: New NYC Museum Exhibit Goes Heavy On Digital To Tell City’s Story

There is a ton of really well executed tech in a new permanent exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, which opens tomorrow in guess where.

The digital side of the exhibit was put together by Local Projects, which among other jobs did the experiential digital for the 9-11 museum.


A preview in Untapped Cities does not go into much technical detail, but suggests there are fine pitch LED walls at the entrances to galleries, numerous interactive stations, and what looks like a really slick used of lower rez LED mesh screens hanging from the ceiling.


There’s also what would have to be a set of curved OLED panels in an area called the Future City Lab.

The museum is at 5th Avenue and 103rd, so way up north of what many NYC visitors ever see. But looks well worth the subway ride.
