Kinzua Bridge State Park Visitor Center Exhibits
The steam-era industrial exhibit style is based on the design and style aesthetic from the late 1800s to early 1900s. The exhibit style informed the artistry throughout the exhibits and enhanced visitors’ understanding of the historic viaduct as an engineering marvel. The interpretive content builds their understanding and appreciation for the cultural and natural resources of the park and encourages them to go outside and experience it for themselves.
Client: Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
Primary goal: The need to transport coal, timber and oil resources through the Kinzua Creek Valley spurred the engineering challenge of building the Kinzua Bridge. Historically, people were attracted to the impressive bridge and the views it offered; today, scenic views from the skywalk continue to attract visitors.
