About the Award
The Reagan Library was presented with the Silver MUSE Award in the category of Games and Augmented Reality on Sunday, May 7, 2017, at the 2017 American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri. This award recognizes high achievement in the application of media and technology to Gallery, Library, Archive, and Museum (GLAM) programs. Now in its 28th year,the competition is administrated by the American Alliance of Museums Media & Technology Professional Network.
The script from the awards event stated, “The jury was impressed with the educational and experiential foundation of the Situation Room Experience. The technology component of the project was less overt and more integrated than many museum technology projects, and that integration with the experience... was a real strong point for this submission. The game play structure was well thought out and the project included an impressive array of interpretive media and analog content to support the play.”
“The Reagan Library believes in pushing the boundaries for audiences beyond the traditional museum experience and we are honored and excited to be recognized by the American Alliance for our work in technical integration.” -Duke Blackwood, Director, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum
