As a leader in innovative interactive exhibits, the Exploratorium always offers us a welcomed challenge. Optical Moderna started out as a single vintage photograph of a 20th century optometrists shop, and with Gizmo’s design team, became a full scale re-creation. Always looking for ways to maximize the value and usefulness of our work, Gizmo incorporated additional and much needed storage space behind the Optica Moderna storefront.


“When Gizmo built the storefront for us, they put a mirror inside the keyhole for all those curious kids who just have to look. It was a nice extra touch that reflected their understanding of our visitors.” Alice Krasinski, The Exploratorium
