SUMMARY

The US Coast Guard is undertaking a project to build a National Museum, located in New London in Connecticut. The museum association has raised about $48 million toward the estimated $100 million project thus far. Renderings by architects Payette showcase an 80,000-square-foot, five-story, interactive museum. The Eagle, a training vessel for cadets at the Coast Guard Academy and those going through the Officer Candidate School, is expected to be a main feature of the museum and will be docked at City Pier when the ship is in New London. AldrichPears Associates have unveiled several exhibit design concepts. The goal of the interpretation is to put the visitor in the shoes of Coast Guard, offering opportunities to solve problems, learn real skills and interact with virtual members of the service. Exhibits will also focus on the past, present and future of the Coast Guard. The exhibit detailed design is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The first phase of construction is projected to start in early 2020. Our completion date is an estimate.
