In honor of 150 years of Cincinnati Reds baseball, the team, in partnership with FRCH NELSON, renovated the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum. The $5 million project renovated over 15,000 sf of the largest team Hall of Fame in Major League Baseball to create a more organized and engaging visitor experience.

The museum’s collection was rearranged in a progressive order and the experience was enhanced by incorporating environmental graphics, adding new artifacts, and integrating touchscreen technology to increase engagement. The space was reconfigured into six unique galleries, which each highlighting different aspects of the team’s history and comprising over 7,000 team artifacts.

The 360 degree cinema plaque room is a guest-operated space that shares the stories of each Reds Hall of Fame inductee.
