Now in its 5th year, Chichester’s Novium Museum provides a wonderful place for which local and international visitors can soak up the rich heritage of the city of Chichester and its surrounding areas.
The Novium’s Manager Cathy Hakes approached Buzzword with the exciting and unique task of designing and developing an interactive, informative and impactful Tim Peake exhibition, which would allow visitors of all ages to follow Tim’s astronomical adventure – from his birth and formative years here in Chichester, through his career so far, culminating in his extraordinary mission into outer space.
Our strategy was to tell the story of the man (a local hero) and his journey into space. ‘An Extraordinary Journey’ presents the journey of Tim Peake’s life, through childhood, career, astronaut training and finally culminating in his time on board the International Space Station. Tim himself is very keen to build on the imagination and aspirations of our children and education plays an important role in this exhibition. It visually combines the factual with the fun, creating an interactive and inspiring space which ultimately elevates the visit to more of an experience – a journey – rather than just another exhibition.
The result was a high-impact, visual and interactive treat for visitors both young and old alike.
