Mariners' Museum
Newport News

A 30 million dollar exhibit and conservation complex is currently under construction on the grounds of the Mariners' Museum.

When completed, it will serve as the final berth for key recovered components of the revolutionary Civil War iron clad Monitor.

David Lenk has been retained to develop substitute exhibits for the turret and power plant (both under long-term conservation), assist in the development of an interactive theatre, revise structures and specific exhibit features from an earlier design concept, and direct the detailing of all exhibit components.
