Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Museum
(Work in Progress)

Project Overview

The TMNT Museum in Hertfordshire (private) will be home to the many toy figurines that make up the history of the merchandising wing of the endearing franchise. The collection will display the entire evolution of the Turtles from their origins in the 1980's to present, featuring Leonardo, Michalangelo, Donatello and Raphael.

The Museum space has several prime areas such as a stage set featuring a turtle descending a rope down to a sewer, a garage set as seen in the cartoons and movies, the Ninja Turtles subterranean den and open museum space on two floors with glass display cabinets. Merge has been contracted to design and install the lighting system, audio visual and cinema systems, HVAC and smart controls using Vantage lighting modules, HVAC interface, motion sensors and touch panels.

Lighting approach

Lighting approach

Following traditional museum lighting, we have opted for a mixture of in ceiling gymbals, down lights and track lighting to bring the many installations and displays to life. LED lighting is integrated into the glass cabinets and as a viewer approaches any of the displays, a motion sensor will trigger and the zone will raise, inviting the viewer in for a closer look.

The main set showing a Turtle descending a rope to the subterranean underworld of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be lit within to create dimension to the caverns and tunnels that make us the sewer.

Audio system approach

Audio system approach

The museum will have several zones of background music driven by a Vantage Multi Room AV Controller with Polk Audio in-ceiling loudspeakers. The main source for background music is the Sonance iPort, controlled from a Vantage TPT 1040 Touch Panel. In addition there is also a 5.1 cinema system incorporated into the Den set, which is designed to look just like the TMNT's Den. The cinema will provide a powerful audio visual experience to the viewer and be controlled by an LCD hand held controller.

As well as controlling the iPod, the Vantage TPT 1040 touch panel will also be the control point for the entire lighting system, HVAC and cinema and background music systems.
