Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park, Civil War Exhibit

Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park–Buffalo, NY:

The Buffalo Naval Park was interested in creating an exhibit focusing on the American Civil War and its ties to Western New York. With substantial space limitations, the exhibit makes the best use of space by utilizing linear-aligned exhibits: one, a modern interpretive rail along an existing railing, and the other, a re-created Civil War-era split-rail fence that runs parallel to a large wall graphic of an archival photo. iPads mounted to the fence provide visitors with a touch of technology, and a custom-built, free-standing artifact case holds Civil War-era objects from Buffalo and Western New York.
