A story isn’t told in a vacuum. Our team ensures that the key messages driving your exhibit fit within the identity of your institution. We take your organization’s values, brand standards, and desired tone into consideration when crafting the story that flows through your exhibit.
Experienced in overseeing complex projects large and small, our project managers serve as a conduit between numerous stakeholder groups that are often involved in a single exhibit project. Our “PMs” are highly skilled at facilitating stakeholder alignment, effective communication, and logistical planning critical to a well-executed project.
Between stakeholder changes, incomplete blueprints, historical preservation restrictions, and funding delays, the exhibit process is full of surprises. Having installed over 200 exhibits over the last 20 years, we are skilled at both anticipating project hiccups before they materialize and helping you minimize the impact of the unavoidable.
“Split Rock Studios was able to take all our ideas and develop them into an amazing story to share with our visitors. The team is very creative, fun to work with, and most importantly, showed a willingness to learn the subject they are creating and designing.”
“Every aspect of the exhibits has been produced to a very high level of detail and finish, and to a person, the SRS team has been a pleasure to work with.”
“Please extend our sincere appreciation for the painstaking, methodical, and detail-oriented work that went into the restoration of our dioramas. They have played a central role in the museum for over 75 years, and your team really breathed new life into them. Future generations will benefit from your expertise and care.”

"Split Rock Studios have gone above and beyond to help us implement interactive exhibits into our Dragoon Trace Nature Center. From the initial project discussions and design work, to the completed creation, Split Rock Studios employees are beyond compare in customer care and product quality."
"The people, visitors, artists, and primarily educators and children are thrilled by the quality of the design, content, and images in the exhibits. Even professional translators and academics have come to us and expressed their appreciation for what we did. I truly appreciate your cultural sensitivity, depth of knowledge, and patience as we worked with the smallest of details to make sure the message was clear and direct. ¡Muchas gracias!"
"Split Rock Studios heard what we wanted and did a great job putting those ideas into the design, construction and install. Always accessible for questions and quick to respond to changes or issues. Gotta love common sense and they had it. SRS was one of only two contractors that we didn’t have to push or prod to get our project on track. They are an honest, hardworking company with great staff."
