The exhibit features several interactive screens, including a 20’x 6’ touchscreen, interactive wall map to help visitors get an idea of locations and sites to see on the Yard. There is a station dedicated to featured graduates of USNA, interactive video screens featuring midshipmen and recent graduates who discuss admissions, academics, midshipman life, and career options, and an interactive screen that hosts the USNA Alumni Association directory and look-up.

The opening of this exhibit coincides with the launch of the Naval Academy on Google Street View. People now have the opportunity to explore parts of the Naval Academy before ever stepping foot on the grounds. Locations featured in Google Street View include Stribling Walk, the interior of Mahan Hall, the Chapel, and the Rotunda in Bancroft Hall, along with various outdoor walkways around the Yard.
