Washington State History Museum

The Imagination Story of “Washington My Home.”

The objective of this project was to renew and refresh the main floor gallery within the Great Hall of Washington History with a new focus on telling the compelling stories of immigrants to Washington State. The exhibit contains a diverse array of artifacts and interpretation set inside a space designed to evoke the feeling of a 19th-century railway station, surrounded by a 15-foot high light box representing exterior windows. The immigrants’ stories are communicated through imagery, graphics, text panels, audio/visual and lighting coordinated displays, as well as multiple interactives, many of which are housed inside two over-sized luggage carts, stacked with vintage suitcases and trunks. Visitors can engage directly and share their own stories by marking their birthplace on a large world map, voting for the reason that brought them to Washington, or writing an electronic “postcard” on vintage style typewriters to appear on a large wall screen for other guests to enjoy.
