“The New Jersey mobile museum is the first state Hall of Fame Mobile Museum exhibit in the nation, it’s been called a “field trip on wheels.” Inside, visitors will find a dramatic multimedia exhibition created around the theme “Make a Difference”.
Inductees range from Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein to Vince Lombardi and Shaquille O’Neal. The mobile museum will inspire children to strive for excellence in all walks of life, and by offering positive role models, it will provide them with a blueprint on how to follow in the footsteps of our Jersey legends that are showcased on board the mobile museum.
Steve Edwards, president of the New Jersey Hall of Fame Foundation Board noted that “The Mobile Museum reinforces the message to children that they can achieve great things through passion and dedication.” The Mobile Museum’s actual structure is based upon a 53-foot double-expandable trailer. On the highway, the trailer is the standard 8.6’ wide by 53’ long. However, on location, the trailer expands from both sides to an amazing 850 square feet of first-class exhibit space.
Through images, artifacts, film, and interactive elements, visitors can explore the ways that New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees have changed the state and the world: as innovators, as leaders, and as voices for the voiceless—often against overwhelming odds. And they’ll be invited to consider how they, too, can make a difference in our world. Displays will rotate on an ongoing basis to highlight new Hall of Fame inductees.
Lynch Exhibits a member of ISHA, engineered & fabricated all of the exhibit components in their 210,000 sq. ft. facility. Designed by renowned museum exhibition designer, Ralph Appelbaum Associates and famed architect and Hall of Fame inductee Michael Graves, The Mobile Museum will also be featured at a number of community events for the immense enjoyment of the general public, and will be featured at a number of schools throughout the state.
