Taylor Studios Inc. met and even exceeded our expectations for the cast figures. They easily adapted to design modifications and were enthusiastically responsive to art direction, while still completing the project on time. It is work like that of Taylor Studios' that has made the National Museum of the Marine Corps an award winning museum.

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.
Ronald Roehmholdt, Exhibit Chief
Navy Museums Northwest. Bremerton, WA
…I really like TSI because…they were fun to work with and related to what we were trying to accomplish. It was also nice that Betty would check-in on occasion. This really demonstrated that the leader of the company cared about our project and was interested in ways to make things better.

I feel that it was successful because we had every opportunity to provide feedback and there was very little happening that we did not have information on. The project was coordinated very well and there was consistent and timely communication on all aspects of the project.

If so, why and to whom? I would recommend them to anyone who is completing an interpretive project. This was our department’s first experience in this type of development and TSI was able to lay out a process that really helped make everything operate very efficiently,

They are a great group of people to work with and they know what they are talking about.

In our $35,000,000 total construction effort, Taylor Studios was absolutely the best contractor on the job.  I give them my highest recommendation without reservation and have steadfastly recommended them for other projects.  There is no better mannequin maker or no firm that will give you better service.

National Civil War Museum
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.

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 we have high regard for them today....it's the staff.

I hope that I will be lucky enough to work with Taylor Studios on future display projects here at the Dillon Nature Center. All of your employees from the designers to the fabricators to the installers are great people and are very easy to work with. Thank you again for all that you have done for the nature center

Taylor Studios combined incredible attention to detail with a real instinct for and knowledge about natural features, and excellent customer service. The process of design and fabrication was as solid and enjoyable as the products they produced. We've been very pleased with their work.
Doug Decker, Interpretive Program Director

Just a quick note from the office this fine Saturday to tell you that your crew is doing a great job with the exhibit installation. It's looking just incredible, and a couple of board members who have visited have been blown away by what they saw.

I just wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the work of Taylor Studios in the new Heart and Vascular Institute and the Carle Tower. Samantha was great to work with, very accommodating to eleventh hour requests and she clearly takes pride in her work. Based on our experience we would look forward to another opportunity to work with Taylor and would recommend your company to other not for profit organizations.

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.

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.

Taylor Studios has been a tremendous resource for our small design and interpretation firm. Whether they're creating extensive dioramas, organizing interactives or simply small fabrication jobs, we can always rely on Taylor's cheerful and prompt expertise and help. We keep coming back!

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.

Dedication and commitment are intangible items that do not appear on a bid. From the initial phases of the contract through installation, Taylor Studios was easy to work with and responsive to the needs of the client above and beyond the call of duty.
