Why Custom Glass Displays Are Necessary for Museums

From sports hall of fame museums to art galleries to military exhibitions, valuable items on display need to be protected. At the same time, the artifacts should be clear and viewable from multiple angles. Using a custom glass display case is the best way to combine protection and visibility for many kinds of museum items. Today on the blog, the Springfield Glass Company explains why custom glass displays are necessary for museums.

Protect Valuables

Museums and art galleries display collections, photographs, artifacts, and other memorabilia from some of the most iconic moments in history. Therefore, it’s paramount that these items receive the highest quality protection. A custom glass display case keeps museum artifacts safe and secure and prevents eager tourists from touching anything that’s off limits. Display cases can make a security officer’s job easier while also protecting the valuables for years to come.

Give Consumers a Clear View

In addition to protecting commemorative items, custom glass display cases give guests a clear, open view of what’s inside. Consumers who attend a museum exhibition want to learn something new about the event or the particular period in history, and display cases bring the most treasured artifacts up close for viewers. You can add custom glass cases to the gallery space, museum floor, or showroom for tourists and locals to explore. For maximum visibility, choose a display case that is viewable from any angle, including the front, back, and sides.       

Types of Museum Display Cases

Museums glass displays come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some showcases are free standing on wooden legs, while others are rectangular shaped clear glass cases. Here are some common types of display cases found in museums:

  • Table Top Displays
  • Drawer Cabinets
  • Wall Display Cabinets
  • Modular Display Cases
  • Freestanding Display Cases
