The staff of the Truman Presidential Library and Museum wanted to completely rethink the themes, ideas, and design of the museum, for which Monadnock had previously designed and produced the media exhibits in 2000. Working from conceptual design through installation with the museum team and Gallagher and Associates, we did just that. The new permanent exhibit, “Harry S. Truman: An Ordinary Man, His Extraordinary Journey” presents this Midwestern farm boy who never went to college and his remarkable rise to President of the United States. The museum’s ultimate goal is that future generations will come to understand both the possibilities and the responsibilities of American citizenship.
In over 35 multimedia exhibits, Monadnock helped tell Truman’s story, highlighting the perennial issues and themes from Truman’s presidency that still impact the world today.
"This has to be the best museum of its kind around. And it doesn't seek to rewrite history. The interactive displays are outstanding."
