Zehnder & The National WWII Museum: Honoring the Past with Modern Day Technology


Zehnder & The National WWII Museum: Honoring the Past with Modern Day Technology

In the spring of 2017, Zehnder partnered with The National WWII Museum to create an interactive experience honoring those who support the Museum. Our digital department worked closely with the WWII Museum staff to design four kiosks highlighting Museum Members, volunteers, veterans, and others who have helped this institution remain one of the top attractions in the world. 

The interactive stations allow Museum guests to filter through and learn more about Honor Roll Members, Patriots Circle Donors, American Spirit Award Recipients, and Volunteer Hall of Fame Members. Using a touch screen, visitors can engage with the Museum in a whole new way. A fifth kiosk features information on the Horatio Alger Association and its awards and scholarship program. The kiosks feature multiple screens measuring up to 47 inches in width. They are located in the Museum’s special Donor Atrium on the second floor.

Our digital team created the interfaces for each kiosk, developing engaging and user-friendly designs that meet the needs of the Museum’s large and diverse audience. We also worked with the institution’s large database of Members, volunteers, donors, awardees, and honorees to have the kiosks auto-update on a regular basis. For example, the Honor Roll display is updated nightly with more than 600,000 Charter Members. When we finished the project within the tight three-month deadline, we delivered a sophisticated interactive experience that could be simply managed by the client. Today, The National WWII Museum staff is able to quickly edit and update the kiosks’ information using Zehnder’s CMS.
