Milwaukee Public Museum

This large collecting museum of natural and human history, one of the oldest and largest in America, asked Roto to develop innovative new exhibit concepts for a proposed future relocation. They asked us to think big.


  • Radically different approach to visible storage
  • Technology in service of authenticity
  • Powerful blends of media, programming, objects and theater

Roto is developing fresh approaches that restore traditional exhibition techniques in newly engaging ways. By hiding sophisticated technology behind thoroughly authentic, multi-sensory experiences we open whole new avenues for visitor understanding and social participation.

 Rather than devalue content in the face of populist demand for entertainment, Roto is leveraging the public appetite for crafts, games, puzzles, mystery, and personal discovery to forge innovative bonds of learning and emotional connection.
