The Unisystem was a museum-wide interactive computer system designed to mediate between the museum and museum visitor to provide useful information for the general public audience (adults, older children, younger children, and K-12 teachers). It was installed between1989-1991, and consisted of:

  • A 42 computer network, controlled by a 6 minicomputer network
  • 9 Information Stations: showtimes, demonstrations, and visitor services
  • 28 Exhibit Enhancement Stations: overviews, treasure hunts, science tips, and take-home activities
  • 5 Print Stations: for all take-away materials
