The Empire State Building in New York has opened a 10,000 square foot museum in the 2nd floor of the building as a mechanism to reduce perceptions of long waiting lines to get to the observatories on the 86th and 102nd floors.

The museum has a pile of technology in it, most notably a gallery with 72 screens that show how the famed skyscraper has been portrayed through the years in popular culture.

There are also screens – including interactive ones – sprinkled through the nine galleries and the ticketing areas.

Diversified, based across the Hudson in New Jersey, handled the display integration.

There’s a good piece here in Building Design & Construction that goes into detail and rattles off the companies involved.

  1. I personally witnessed these last night, and they are very impressive. Crystal clear displays with great content. Not a single clip longer than 45 seconds. Overall great experience.
