Lewisburg Children's Museum
The museum’s mission is to provide visitors with an interactive, hands-on experience. Therefore, walls had to be touchable, cleanable, and resistant to frequent impact. They also had to integrate with each exhibit’s story, with engaging artwork that seamlessly flowed from room to room.
The museum features several large exhibits, including the agriculture room, which pays homage to local culture with barns, silos, and farm animals. The outer space room explores the unknown with detailed, high-resolution imagery of black holes, stars, and planets. The theater room has a roomy stage facing a city skyline, plus easels with art supplies.
“We knew we would need durable, sustainable material. We needed graphics that would withstand the playfulness of children. We understood the rooms could become crowded with lots of children and their families, wheelchairs, and strollers. Whatever the walls were made from, we had to be sure that they would not be dented or damaged,” said Ms. Gulden-Luthi. “Acrovyn by Design wall coverings help us accomplish that in a beautiful way.”
Five exhibits within the museum incorporated Acrovyn by Design murals to visually transform and protect walls. The museum opened to rave reactions from children and parents alike. “I did cartwheels the first time we came to the finished space,” said Ms. Remmey, vice president on the museum’s board of directors. “When we saw the first room with its wall covering, I almost cried. It didn’t look like a museum before Acrovyn by Design. This just brought it to life; it was a game changer.” “It’s great to see the kids interact with the murals,” said Ms. Gulden-Luthi.
Ms. Sweeting, CS project coordinator, pointed out that CS’ contributions didn’t stop with manufacturing the product. “In addition to our design services, we went to the museum and set up the wall coverings. We were present from beginning to end, from conception to product installation.” With such vivid imagery, Lewisburg Children’s Museum is more than equipped to deliver its education-focused mission to the local community with the peace of mind that comes from choosing CS products and services.
