Dorval: More Than Three Hundred Years of History!, a permanent exhibition which highlights the rich history of this suburb of Montreal. To stage the content developed by the Museum, Merlicht proposed a contemporary museography approach, with bright touches of color and lines inspired by the original vocation of the Museum building, a former stable. The various exhibits facilitate the retention of messages communicated and diversify the visitors experiences: the Hall of Honour, its portraits and interactive photo booth; the Stable, its colorful horses transformed into interpretation media and its Discovery Chests for children; the column of books, a signage element to guide visitors towards the second floor to discover the history of Dorval told along a time line and through many artifacts; the oversized Souvenir Album where visitors enter into the memory of former vacationers, etc. Merlicht also designed the Museum’s promotional brochure/visitor guide and outdoor sign.
