Multimedia Gallery Exhibit Kiosks

Our Multimedia Gallery™ exhibit kiosks are large-format, museum-quality, multi-touch computer installations offering hours of place-based storytelling that deepens visitors’ understanding, strengthens connections to regional environments, and inspires stewardship. Kiosks are placed in highly-visited areas such as resorts, museums, visitor centers, and parks as well as unexpected locations such as coffee shops, libraries, retail settings, and brew pubs. 

Curated and Original Media

Small and Large Group Viewing

Kiosk configurations allow an intimate multimedia experience for individuals and small groups. The program’s content can also be projected for viewing by a larger audience. Media elements can be searched by category or accessed through a Google-Earth-style map that offers detailed explorations at multiple levels of scale.
