Project Description:

For history, space, and technology enthusiasts, this renovated and expanded museum is a must-see. JRA served as thematic design consultant for the South Carolina State Museum – the first museum of its kind where visitors can see an onsite (and online) observatory, 55-foot digital planetarium, and 4D multi-sensory theatre in one place.

As one of the nation’s largest STEM educational facilities connected to an interactive museum, this award-winning, South Carolina gem features art, cultural history, natural history and science and technology. JRA’s design embraced the building’s historic use as a mill, incorporating rustic charm to the museum’s lobby, exhibit, and retail areas.
