Oklahoma History Centre

Located on an 18 acre site across the road from the Capital building, the Oklahoma History Centre enables visitors to take a self guided exploration of Oklahoma history from past to present. Within the 215,000 sq ft are five extraordinary galleries housing more than 200 hands-on audio, video and computer activities.

The opening of the History Centre represented more than ten years work for the Museum team with D J Willrich Ltd being involved for approaching four years through the design process. With every penny having to be raised to realise ambitious plans and extensive galleries, every dollar spent had to be properly justified and the benefit maximised.

DJW designed and specified all the audio visual systems before preparing bid documentation and appointing the AV contractor. DJW project managed the AV contractor, a local company with no experience, supervised the final show control programming and ensure that the AV was installed to the client’s requirements.

DJW also designed, focussed and programmed control systems for lighting purchased by the architect.

The project is a credit to the client and design team, delivering their goal of “Smithsonian quality galleries” in Oklahoma.
