For the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth, Sarner designed this experience to fit into five separate areas within the Victory Gallery – the Waiting Area, the Briefing Area, the Gundeck, the Orlop Deck (the surgery) and the Wyllie Panorama.
Through the use of scenics, audio-visual, special effects, lighting and theatre, these five areas are individually designed to be informative, emotional, thrilling, thought provoking, and, above all, educational.
Campbell McMurray, the Royal Naval Museum’s Director, is justly proud of the achievements of the impact of this historically significant and immersive visitor experience. He explains, “For the first time, the city has a museum of truly international status. The new displays and visitor facilities now make the Museum one of the trail blazers in the heritage field”.
