Holliday Park Nature Center
Holliday Park is a 13,000 sq. ft. Nature Center that interprets the natural and environmental history of Marion County. The Center is located in Indianapolis, IN. Over ten years ago, Taylor Studios designed and built the exhibits that are there now. Currently, we are in the process of redesigning them for a fresh new engaging experience for Holliday Park’s visitors.
Lincoln Heritage Museum
The Lincoln Heritage Museum, located on the campus of Lincoln College in Lincoln, IL, began refining the storyline for the museum in 2007. In 2011, Taylor Studios was hired to complete the design-build project. It was determined the primary theme of the museum would be “Lincoln in Illinois” as the Museum’s collection includes an outstanding array of artifacts from Lincoln’s pre-presidential years primarily spent in Illinois. The new exhibits focus on Lincoln’s law career, his political development, the Lincoln-Douglas debates, the 1860 campaign, and other aspects of his life in Illinois, particularly his time in Logan County.
North Dakota Heritage Center
The North Dakota Heritage Center is undergoing a large expansion project which includes exhibit design-build work in three of the main galleries: Geologic Time, Early Peoples, and Inspiration. The galleries combine for over 33,000 sq. ft. For this project, Taylor Studios partnered with Lord Cultural Resources and Xibitz to create the Joint Venture, Great Plains Exhibit Development. While Lord is leading the design portion of the project, Taylor Studios and Xibitz are completing Final Design, Fabrication, and Installation.
Taylor Studios was hired by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to design and fabricate exhibits for the Horicon Marsh Education Center in Horicon, WI. The theme of the exhibit will be “Horicon Marsh: The Great Hunting Grounds” with exhibits highlighting Geological Origins, Ecological Functions, and Cultural Interactions with the Marsh. The visitor’s experience may begin in the Outdoor Welcome Area and continue into the Upper Lobby exhibit area, then into the showcase Explorium, into the Lower Level Hallway and Lower Lobby historical area, and eventually out the lower entrance of the building where visitors may exit to enjoy the network of hiking trails and the Marsh itself.
