Napa Valley Museum
The Napa Valley Museum asked Hilferty to complete a Concept Study that identified an interpretive program and messages for its planned expansion. A multidisciplinary approach that integrated natural history, cultural history, and art throughout the galleries was developed. An innovative Dreamscape Corridor dramatically represents the physical valley while serving as the navigational spine to the Museum. In the multimedia Balloon Theater, visitors take a virtual hot air balloon ride through the Valley’s natural and cultural past which dramatically unfolds around them.
