Museum collections are widely varied and specialized.
In almost every case, the amount of holdings in storage in a museum outweighs what is on display at any given moment. Space constraints are already a concern as collections increase within the same footprint, and as more museums look to the future of delivering personalized experiences to museum goers, the need for organized, compact museum collections storage will be more important than ever.
Along with our Spacesaver partners, we’ve had the privilege to store some of the most fascinating museum collections in the United States and beyond. From rare books to historic guns, furniture to whale bones, 6,000 lb. torpedoes to art collections, we’ve created countless museum collection storage solutions specifically designed to the unique needs of a variety of artifacts and acquisitions.
From integrating storage with HVAC and fire suppression systems to creating special gasketing to seal off rare collections from damaging elements, our goal is simple: to design storage that puts both space conservation and collections conservation at the forefront.
Take a look below at how San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum created a new museum collection storage solution when they relocated to the historic Main Library.
