Preserving a Community’s Seafaring Heritage: Spacesaver Helps Museum Create Room to Grow
24 Jul 2017
By preserving and displaying historic boats, documents, memorabilia, and other artifacts, the the Columbia River Maritime Museum acts as a repository for knowledge about the entire Columbia River watershed, as well as the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest and the communities that have been shaped by these environments.
The museum was founded in 1962, and twenty years later a large building was constructed to house the museum’s exhibits, staff offices, and collections areas. But by 1999, the museum’s collections areas were at capacity. Due to the fact that only a small fraction of the museum’s collections is on display at any given time, and because the museum was actively acquiring new objects, the museum needed a variety of storage solutions to house its ever-growing collections.
