Elevating Museum Experiences: Pulseworks’ Immersive Simulations at the Smithsonian Institution

Pulseworks is a productive partner of the Smithsonian Institution, engaging millions of guests since our first simulator attraction began there in 2000. We currently operate three major revenue-generating attractions within the Smithsonian complex of museums, employing over 75 operational and technical team members in the DC area. Our immersive galleries at The National Air and Space Museum and The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly are “must-do” attractions that create excitement and engagement within each host museum. Pulseworks offers interactive flight simulation experiences on many different historic aircraft models as well as a myriad of aviation and aerospace-related motion capsule ride content.

Pulseworks produced a custom ride film feature for the Smithsonian that allows guests to experience a thrilling ride aboard one of the crown jewels in the Museum’s collection, The Space Shuttle Discovery. Our team of in-house digital content designers also created a custom Space Shuttle Discovery Landing App for smartphones that helped the Institution celebrate the opening of the Shuttle Discovery exhibit in April, 2012.

Through our turn-key, revenue share management model, we deliver memorable, mission-related immersion and exciting adventure simulation experiences while achieving significant “risk-free” financial results for our partners. Pulseworks’ is proud to contribute to the reputation and sustainability of world’s largest museum complex.
