The entire second floor has been given over to our new Kit Moncrief Galleries, including our new It's Never Just a Horse exhibition. We have taken the idea of the horse as our springboard to talk about those women who are shaping the West and changing the world. The exhibition will focus on five main areas in which the horse, women, the West and the world are undeniably linked: Ranching, Competing, Healing, Business and Inspiring. We are taking advantage of the latest developments in technology and museum design to showcase artifacts and develop educational opportunities. We are excited to share new technology in our Immersion Interactive Room visitors can design their own cowgirl piece.
Yes! The Bucking Bronc Experience is a beloved attraction and has made a return to the second floor with some new features.
It became clear to us as we undertook our research that the horse is many things to many people – and not just women. The horse can be a partner, a competitor, a muse, a lifesaver – and more: It's Never Just a Horse.
Over the past 17 years, we have changed cases and altered two smaller galleries on the second floor, but we have never undertaken a comprehensive renovation on this floor. Not only was it simply time to do so, but also this second floor renovation resumes the narrative thread from where the first floor renovation narrative stopped.
We have engaged the architectural firm, Projectiles, for our second floor overall design. They designed our first floor, including the innovative, two-story mobile. Additionally, we have engaged the Projects Group and Bennett Benner Partners. We teamed up with Ideum for the new Immersion Interactive Room.
This is a 5.5 million dollar undertaking.
February 5, 2018 through March 9, 2019.
