The Broadway Museum's primary focus is to highlight the aspect that Broadway holds the most concentrated theaters along one street. Another aspect of Broadway is the fact that it is known as the Great White Way because of the many different Art Deco and Spanish Influenced designed facades of the buildings that line Broadway. The public generally experiences the front of house areas that are finely finished but rarely is the public exposed to the components that construct the building or the back of house areas. The Broadway Museum features a main atrium space that forms a false perspective internal street that emphasizes the extension of Broadway. Within the Broadway Museum all surfaces that are facing Broadway will be finished with muted colors and the opposite sides will have the exposed structure of both the walls and flooring construction of the building; this further emphasizes the concept of a finished front of house and raw exposed back of house concept that is found throughout Broadway. The objects displayed in the museum will bring the texture and color elements to the museum while all architectural elements are muted and monochromatic. Objects that can be found range from flat works to textiles to building models.
