Including this week's "Project Highlight", ALD has worked on over 30 museum projects, 
just since 2010! 
Opened in April of 2016, the SPAM Museum is located in Austin, Minnesota. Owned and operated by Hormel Foods, LLC (the creators of SPAM), the museum exhibits were designed by Jack Rouse Associates. The new space, right in downtown Austin, combines displays from an older location and new interactive features that allow visitors to explore SPAM flavor offerings from around the world, along with the history of SPAM and it's importance during World War II.
