D-Day marked the beginning of the end of the war in Europe. During difficult times, we take inspiration from the men and women who faced unbelievable challenges and saved the world. We value those museums that commemorate their achievements and sacrifices.

Memorial Day and Military Museums — Design and Production Incorporated

D&P has been honored to fabricate and install many exhibits at military museums. This #MemorialDay, visit a military museum. Read more about the importance of exhibiting military history. http://ow.ly/sgdR50zNTTU

Memorial Day honors the sacrifices of men and women who died while serving in the United States military. Military museums and exhibits memorialize veterans’ sacrifices every day. Importantly, they provide context so that the public may better understand and appreciate military service.

Day #4 of #MuseumWeek2020 encourages us to recall museum memories. While we have many, many great memories of terrific exhibits, we are going in a different direction. Our recent client, the Bell Museum of Minnesota, was and is a beloved community anchor. They were (and are) known for their outstanding collection of natural history dioramas. When it came time to redesign and reinstall exhibits, they chose to keep the dioramas that meant so much to the community and around which there were so many precious family memories. We say that museum memories are not only larger than life, they sustain you throughout a lifetime.
