U-boat U-505

client:

Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

 

vision:

Help Guests Understand the Significance of Capturing an Intact Nazi Submarine

 

scope:

35,000 Square Feet / $35M

Chick Russell Communications was retained to write the final detailed visitor experience for this exhibit. We gathered WWII research with the help of museum history curators and naval experts and distilled volumes of technical data into a compelling narrative. This narrative became the basis for all exhibits, interactives, media and interpretive text.

The exhibit allows guests to discover how Allied Forces were able to gather top-secret information about U-boat locations, how the U.S. Navy hunted U-boats, and how heroic U.S. sailors risked their lives to get aboard and capture a sinking U-boat at sea.
