The permanent exhibition hall, set amongst the hangars at Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, tells the story of the Cold War, from national, international, social, political, and cultural perspectives.
Newangle produced a series of audio-visual exhibits that focus on key aspects of the Cold War such as the Berlin Airlift, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Space Race.
An immersive audiovisual presentation about the Cuban Missile Crisis reflects the dramatic tension of the crisis. The audience listens to the story while seated at a circular table surrounded by 12 video screens. A projection onto the table shows animated maps, graphics and video along with a dramatic countdown. The dramatic experience is enhanced by lighting and sound effects.
The exhibit won 'Large Visitor Attraction of the Year' award at the West Midlands Excellence in Tourism Awards 2007.
