A site of exceptional historical significance, the Older Burger Street Prison museum exhibit design needed to maintain the original layout and harsh architecture features of the building while producing a compelling visitor experience. Our exhibit design team provided a complete turnkey solution, from concept to implementation and installation.
A central attraction incorporated into the museum exhibit design is an interactive dialogue with one of the prison’s most famous prisoners: King Dinizulu kaChetshwayo. Visitors engage with a touch screen kiosk containing the list of accusations brought against Dinizulu during his trial for high treason and the king (brought to life on a high definition display) responds accordingly.
The Satyagraha movement section houses a large interactive display featuring a timeline projected onto a digital glass-topped table.
