The RNLI and National Maritime Museum Cornwall have come together to launch a new interactive exhibition focusing on beach safety and the important role of the charity’s lifeguards.
This family focused exhibition allows visitors to get up close to the rescue equipment the RNLI use to keep the coast safe. You can dress up as a lifeguard, climb on board a rescue watercraft, quad bike or take to the helm of an Inshore Rescue Boat (IRB). Visitors will get the opportunity to learn more about beach safety through a selection of fun and interactive displays and games.
Due to Morgans Consult’s wonderful relationship with the RNLI and extensive knowledge of the nationwide visitor centre design, we were approached to come up with a concept for the exhibition.
In order to immerse visitors in the beach experience we transformed the area with a beach / sea floor graphic.
Rock themed information plinths were 3D modelled and placed around the exhibitions to provide visitors with information on the equipment on display.
A bespoke lifeguard dress up stand was created for children to try on replica kit and have photo to remember their visit against a beach backdrop.
Information graphics were created to educate on the dangers of rip currents and how to avoid them. Pillar banner wraps showing the history of lifeguards in Cornwall, the differences between the beach flags and key survival messages.
An interactive game displayed on a multi touch screen digital display allowing visitors to play against each other in keeping the beach safe.
We are very proud to have been asked to create such a unique exhibition along with all our work with the RNLI, helping to educate and stay safe around the water.
The RNLI Rescue Zone exhibition is on the ground floor of one of Cornwall’s most popular attractions and free to enter as part of the admission fee to the Museum. Visit the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall website for more information.
