The McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum is the nation’s first museum dedicated to the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. The museum houses over 25 interactive exhibits throughout the 10,000 square feet of exhibit space in Chicago’s Tribune Tower. From a 30-foot-long video wall to kiosks and installations in many diverse sizes and configurations, these unique media installations engage individuals and groups to make choices, express their opinions, explore their own limits, and compare views in compelling ways. Whether listening to banned music, learning about kids using T-shirts to protest at school, or reading about freedom in other countries, visitors can explore freedom in a relevant and unbiased context that allows them to reach their own conclusions.

Second Story created a suite of browser-based content management tools for the museum staff to easily update the content in many of these installations. The tools keep track of the polling data collected throughout the museum and facilitate the archiving of visitor-contributed video testimonials on what freedom means to them.
