FROM THE CHAIR

Two words that come to mind as I consider this past year are

perseverance and resilience. We, as individuals and as an

organization, could not have imagined the challenges we would

need to overcome when this year began. Likewise, the men and

women of the United States Coast Guard have had to find new

ways to fulfill their missions. Amazingly, the crew of the Cutter

JAMES brought in one of the largest drug interdictions in history;

our ports remained functional to help keep our economy open

and the supply chain moving; and our shore and aviation forces

responded to one of the most demanding hurricane seasons in

our Nation’s history, providing immediate lifesaving response and

ongoing support to protect the environment and return maritime

commerce to pre-storm operations.

In the same spirit, our Capital Campaign Committee officially

kicked off its work in January 2020 and almost immediately had to

adjust our tack on how to connect with new donors and prospects.

We are so grateful for the way donors have responded to our

outreach, and now the phrase “virtual visits” is part of our lexicon.

We appreciate the amazing generosity of those donors who have

made a commitment or an outright gift following these encounters.

Our engineering and design team has continued to work through

the uncertainty of the pandemic. We have worked with City, State,

and Federal officials and submitted all required permits. We have

set a goal date for the beginning of Construction Phase I in the fall

of 2021, and by the end of the year our pedestrian bridge design

will have been presented to the New London Planning and Zoning

Committee for final approval of this State-funded project.

Coast Guard crews do some of their best work when the

circumstances are at their worst. Despite the challenges of 2020,

we have continued to press on and with $73 million in commitments

and gifts to the Museum, we are nearly halfway to our goal. You,

our donors and valued partners, continue to come through when

we need you the MOST. Thank you. We look forward to next year!

With over 40 years experience in

master planning, exhibit design,

and immersive media, Eisterhold has

INSIDE THE EXHIBITS:

EISTERHOLD ASSOCIATES, INC.

LEADING DESIGN EFFORTS

IN LATE 2019, exhibit design firm Eisterhold

Associates, Inc. was subcontracted by the

cultural resource management firm SEARCH,

Inc. to continue the design process. Eisterhold

has a strong reputation and experience

in master planning, exhibit design and

immersive media for museums with national

interest. Eisterhold submitted the 50% Design

Development documents to the Coast Guard

for review in September 2020. The Museum

Association and numerous Coast Guard

subject matter experts provide input on all

submissions by the design team.

The firm was founded by Gerald Eisterhold

In 1979. Today, Eisterhold’s creation is a

Kansas City-based team with a nationwide

network of associates who have broad

expertise in the planning and design of

innovative interpretive exhibits.

Selecting Eisterhold Associates to design

the exhibits for the National Coast Guard

Museum was an easy decision based on their

past projects, including the exhibit expansion

at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

They developed a master plan for an 80,000

square foot addition to the original exhibit at

the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

Pleased with the master planning, the Marine

Corps enlisted the team to provide exhibit

design, children’s exhibits and immersive

media as well.

The Marine Corps Museum chronicles the

history of the Corps from its creation in 1775

through today. Having attracted over three

million visitors since its opening, the museum

continues to be a favorite with both civilians

and Marines. Thanks to Eisterhold, visitors

can experience history in the making through

new state-of-the-art immersive exhibits, a

children’s education center, and a Marines

sports hall of fame.

The new wing continues the story line of the

original exhibits with several new individual

gallery spaces, which portray the history of

the Marine Corps through artifacts, graphics,

audio & video media, lifelike cast figures,

interactive displays, scenic tableaus, and

dioramas.

Eisterhold also just completed the exhibitory

and programming at the National Museum

of the United States Army. In 2012, the

U.S. Army called on Eisterhold Associates

to develop their 45,000 square foot

exhibit space in their National Museum.

Although the pandemic slightly delayed

the planned June 2020 opening, Eisterhold

has been providing ( continued on page 9)

CONSTRUCTION

DATES SET:

TARGET 2024 OPENING

THE CONSTRUCTION AND ENGINEERING

TEAM HAS BEEN HARD AT WORK to plan

out the schedule for the project phases. The

effort is considerable, given the complexity

of the waterfront site amid New London’s

bustling intermodal transportation hub with

2.5 million passengers per year. Just as

the funding for the Museum is a public/

private partnership, design, engineering

and construction all have stakeholders at the

City, State and Federal levels along with the

Museum Association.

The museum project consists of three phases of

construction that will extend over a period of

four years at a total cost of $150 million with

funding provided by:

• Federal funding through the Coast Guard

($30M) to provide a Museum experience

of excellence including exhibitory and

experiential programming

• State of Connecticut funding ($20M) to

create the associated pedestrian bridge

and public waterfront access

• Private funding through the Museum

Association ($100M) to cover the

Museum design and construction

To date, $73 million has been committed to

the project, nearing the halfway point to goal.

CONSTRUCTION PHASE I (2021-2022)

In order to create a uniform coastline and

to support the Museum structure, waterside

bulkheads and fill material will be placed

along the banks of the Thames River. This

phase has an expected duration of nine

months scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021

and to be completed in 2022. Applicable

permits have been filed with the State of

Connecticut.

PAGE 4

NATIONAL COAST GUARD MUSEUM ASSOCIATION


CONSTRUCTION PHASE II (2022-2024)

Once site preparation is complete, construction

of the Museum structure will commence with

the driving of piles. Erecting the five-story

Museum is expected to take 18 months. During

this period, under the direction of the Coast

Guard, the exhibitory will be fabricated off

site and installed as the decks are substantially

completed. Exhibit installation is expected to

take up the latter six months of the construction

period. Building commissioning is the final step

prior to opening to the public.

CONSTRUCTION PHASE III (flexible)

This phase encompasses the State of Connecticut

pedestrian bridge which will connect the New

London parking garage to the Amtrak train

platforms and to the waterfront plaza with

access to ferry services and the future Museum.

It is envisioned that this phase will be completed

prior to the Museum opening, but it is not in the

critical path for construction therefore providing

timeline flexibility. The phase duration of 14

months will be sequenced at the discretion of

the State of Connecticut.

Below: On September 16, 2020, RDML John Hickey,

Sue Curtin, CT Governor Ned Lamont, and ADM Karl

Schultz meet at the governor’s mansion to discuss the next

steps in building the National Coast Guard Museum.

NEW WAYS TO CONNECT

WITH DONORS

The Museum Association team misses seeing your faces, not as a tiny thumbnail on a screen, your actual, full, physical faces. Like every aspect of

our lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused our team to change the way we raise awareness about the future National Coast Guard Museum.

We closed our offices in March, and we all learned how to achieve our daily tasks from remote home offices. Even now, only a small number of

our full team of employees have returned to our New London office.

“Long before the pandemic, our distributed workforce was spread from Massachusetts to Maryland. So we had an advantage going into the

unforeseeable challenge of COVID-19,” explained Museum Association President, CAPT Wes Pulver, USCG (Ret.). “I am so grateful for how the

team kept working seamlessly when we had to close the office. And we have all gotten creative in order to have meaningful conversations with

volunteers, donor prospects, and each other.”

VIRTUAL VISITS

As a society, we have all learned new ways to “get together” virtually. This is as

true in professional endeavors as it is in our personal lives. For a capital campaign,

the initial meeting is so important as an opportunity to present this ambitious

project in all of its complexity. Equally important is the chance to hear what makes

a donor passionate about the U.S. Coast Guard.

Prior to spring 2020, our Capital Campaign Committee followed best practices

of trying to secure the initial and subsequent donor meetings in person. Faced with

a new reality, we are so grateful for the response that we’ve gotten to requests

to meet over video conference in the intervening months. In fact, we have had

more meetings in 2020 than we have had in recent years.

SPECIAL EVENTS GONE VIRTUAL

In April, we had to postpone our presentation of the Alexander Hamilton Award

to the Coast Guard Aviation Association. Along with our partners at the National

Maritime Historical Society, we hope to hold the National Maritime Awards

Dinner in the spring of 2021.

Although we would have loved to host an in-person awareness event in New

Orleans on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in August, we did the next-best

thing. On August 26th, the Museum Association hosted Stories That Matter

- 15th Anniversary: The Coast Guard Response to Katrina featuring

ADM Thad Allen, USCG (Ret.), CAPT Bruce Jones, USCG (Ret.) and Scott Cooper

of Crescent Towing, hosted by Chief Petty Officer Phil Null, of the They Had to

Go Out podcast.

During the hour-long videoconference, our panelists shared incredible stories

of response and recovery efforts in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina,

a devastating storm after which the Coast Guard rescued more than 33,500

people. From daring helicopter rescues in the dead of night, to utilizing barges

as triage stations, these stories demonstrated the leadership, bravery, innovation

and heroism of the men and women of the Coast Guard and its partners. For

a link to the event video, visit coastguardmuseum.org/annualreport

All of us look forward to the day when we can interact in person again. For now,

we are so appreciative of your willingness to participate in these conversations

and events online.

See you on the screen!

services for the project which is now scheduled

to open November 11, 2020.

The centerpiece of the museum, the Soldiers’

Stories gallery, will introduce visitors to Army

history through personal accounts of Soldiers

who served from colonial times until today.

Six other galleries will include compelling

immersive experiences to highlight actual

scenes of war by projecting historic footage

on walls, large screens, and macro-artifacts.

“Having a firm with Eisterhold’s background

engaged to design the exhibits is fantastic,”

said Museum Association President, CAPT

Wes Pulver, USCG (Ret.). “The Coast Guard

made a wise choice to select the group that

designed exhibits for our peer museums.”

Additional past projects of interest include

The President’s House, a unique outdoor

museum in Philadelphia, PA marking the

location of the first National residence that

predated the White House. A 1984 project

to create a traveling exhibit for the Harry

S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum

led to Eisterhold being selected to design a

permanent exhibit at the Independence, MO

institution in 2002.

and Children’s Annex in Montgomery, AL

highlights their ability to capture moments in

time that impacted our Nation’s history. This

excerpt from their website illuminates how

Eisterhold will be able to bring Coast Guard

stories to life.

“No flashbulbs popped when Rosa

Parks refused to give up her seat on a

Montgomery bus in 1955. No one was

interviewed, no artifacts were collected.

But that one very unheralded act—not

moving—galvanized a movement. It

changed a nation. And Mrs. Parks and

Martin Luther King Jr. became iconic

figures in American history. Over time,

the true story of the Montgomery Bus

Boycott’s beginnings had become blurred

by a host of urban legends.

The Rosa Parks Museum not only sets the

record straight - it puts this extraordinary

event in its proper context, telling the

stories of the many extraordinary citizens

in Montgomery who risked their lives

and livelihood to advance the cause of

justice.”

The keystone exhibit features a real 1955

Montgomery bus, surrounded with historically

marquees, newspaper boxes, and more. To

carry the immersive environment beyond the

bus, the museum is filled with models of the

Montgomery protesters going about their daily

business—everywhere but on a bus.

The Museum Association looks forward

to sharing progress updates as Eisterhold

continues with the design process.
