The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum features a new 12,000 sq. ft. (1,100m) museum and new introductory theater that brings the president’s life, career, achievements, and even his controversies to life in an immersive, interactive, and comprehensive exhibition.

Thinkwell designed and produced the new museum exhibition, partnering with the Richard Nixon Foundation and working in collaboration with the National Archives and Records Administration. Engaging younger audiences with new interactive technologies and immersive environments was a key goal of the exhibition, while illuminating and focusing the story of the president in a truthful, balanced way.
