"I have had the privilege to work with [Taylor Studios’] staff on the planning and design phases of two visitor center exhibit projects…Their work on both is outstanding! Their process is finely tuned to ensure productivity, adherence to schedules, and keeping within budget. Their staff is highly professional, friendly, and flexible…Even though I have not completed fabrication and installation work with them [yet], I am not concerned at all that it will occur smoothly."

"I've visited many museums - the Smithsonians in D.C., state capitols, and the like - and this is EVERY BIT as amazing as those. Excellent, excellent experience.

What this museum does that others don't is localize and humanize the Civil War. Though slavery was horrible, tragedy touched everyone. It's great knowing more about such important local history."
Prairie Grove State Park

"Arkansas State Parks has worked with the staff at Taylor Studios on several projects, and we have been very pleased with the process they use, and the results. Their NAI Certified Interpretive Planners use a collaborative process of asking and listening – and they listen very well – to uncover the most important message we want to deliver to our visitors. Then they work closely with us to flesh out that message with subthemes and storylines that always relate to our resources and purpose. Their friendly attention to us and careful listening to our needs has paid off well for us."
Jay Miller, CIP, CIT

"TAYLOR. Though the name is spelled differently it imbibes the spirit of those capable of making "it fit," precisely, with quality and craftsmanship. Taylor Studios professionals reflect this in their work and work ethic. I truly enjoyed working with (the key word here is with) them on our project and do look forward to future teaming."

"The proof is in the end product...we are extremely pleased with our interpretive area designed, fabricated, and installed by Taylor Studios. Quality results are what we were after and quality is what we received."

"It is the staff who are the core competency of any organization. I find that this is especially true with Taylor. To find a team that is as solution focused, talented and as pleasant to work with as the Taylor team has been a great experience. The Taylor team really gets what we are trying to accomplish and that translates into positive results. The ability for this team to adjust to the client's wishes, last minute change of mind and a variety of unexpected field conditions is quite impressive. Also, the ability to involve the client in developing solutions or improvement opportunities has been very important to us. So before I go on much longer (and yes, I can) I would like to say that the reasons we initially selected Taylor Studios are the same reasons why we have high regard for them today...it's the staff."
Mike Venuti
Discovery Center Director
Albany Pine Bush

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Taylor Studios as they created all of the environmental scenes for the expanded National World War One Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. The professionalism, patience with the museum staff, attention to detail and final products exceeded expectations. The Trenches, Horizon Theater and the Crater are all great hits with our visitors."
Doran Cart

"Working with Taylor Studios was a great experience. From what I understand, the kind of display we needed was quite different than those they were used to creating, for a variety of reasons. But the professionals we worked with at Taylor really listened to the goals of our project and fully collaborated with our in-house creative team to design and fabricate an ideal solution. We were very pleased with their work, and our display continues to be a unique reference point on the Illinois campus. I have recommended Taylor Studios to colleagues, and I would work with them again in the future."
