Eternal Gandhi Museum Houston Opening
Eternal Gandhi Museum Houston, EGMH, the first ever museum in the Americas dedicated to preserving and promoting Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy of nonviolent conflict resolution, is opening in the summer of 2023.
EGMH engaged Solid Light, Inc. from Louisville, Kentucky, to create a world-class museum in September 2019 after interviewing more than a dozen candidates. Solid Light is founded on the premise that people share a passion for great stories. Never willing to settle for the ordinary, they reach deep into their imaginations and diverse backgrounds to create compelling destinations that transform the understanding and generate a lasting impact.
For over 20 years, their in-house design, fabrication, film, and digital experts have transformed audiences’ understanding and passion for museums, branded environments, educational institutions, and public spaces by telling those stories in unforgettable, engaging ways.
The Museum will deliver key messages through thought-provoking, immersive experiences designed to educate, entertain, and inspire lasting change. Solid Light has created the exhibit space such that the visitor experience will encourage exploration and engagement with Gandhi’s journey. There are three thematic gestures:
His Journey: Gandhi’s Life Lessons – his story is an inspiration for Our Future.
Our Journey: Gandhi’s Teachings continue to change Our World – its impact on Global Peace Leaders.
My Journey: Inspire visitors to explore and reflect on Gandhian principles to find resonance in their Own Lives.
The total budget for EGMH is $10 million, of which we have raised $7.3 million.
