“Since our inception, EDG has sought to bring the highest quality, most impressive museum and art exhibitions to our audiences. Working with Destiny USA, we will reach an entirely new audience that may have shied away from going to museums,” explained Amy Noble Seitz, founder and president of EDG. “We are truly excited to embark on this partnership.”
Working with Destiny USA, EDG has helped transform a 7,500-square-foot entertainment space into The Muzium, where four EDG traveling exhibitions will be featured back-to-back over the next several yearsEDG has supported Destiny USA’s leadership to design the world class gallery space and select exhibitions in art, science, popular culture and history.
EDG is the world’s leading traveling exhibition company, known for organizing blockbusters including MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, Dressing Downton, The International Exhibtion of Sherlock Holmes and the recently released Pompeii: The Immortal City, which premiered in Brussels in December 2017. Its expansive portfolio contains exhibitions both created by EDG and those fostered from relationships with some of the most important museums and private collections throughout the world.
“The partnership between EDG and Destiny USA is truly game-changing and The Muzium complements the unique offerings to our guests from all over the world,” expressed Aiden McGuire, Director of Marketing, Destiny USA. “Through these interactive and mind-blowing exhibits, adults and children alike will participate in cultural exploration and education. That is the type of entertainment and culture we want to bring to Destiny USA.”
The partners recently opened The Muzium with The Magical History Tour: A Beatles Memorabilia Exhibition on 9 November, which will be followed by the opening of the family-friendly exhibitions Beyond Rubik’s Cube, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition and more to be announced very soon.
For over a decade, EDG, under Ms. Seitz’s leadership, has sought to expand the scope of museum quality attractions to non-traditional venues including malls, casinos, train stations, cruise ships and riverboats.
Seitz’s strategic vision includes building creative partnerships and collaboration with institutions that will help reach more people, outside of the traditional museum or art gallery setting.
“The partnership between Exhibits Development Group and Destiny USA will allow everyday visitors to engage in activities far beyond the standard shopping experience,” Seitz said. “We are really excited to embark on this partnership with the opportunity to bring incredible exhibits to this area for years to come.”
