In our work with museums, we’ve come to understand a universal truth—most museums own far more artifacts and art than they can possibly display. Collections care is arguably the single most important undertaking for museums, regardless of their size—and as collections continue to grow, it’s important that a museum’s storage space is efficient, convenient, and secure. We’ve partnered with Spacesaver to provide museums with the most expansive, effective line of collection care systems.
One of our partners, the Delaware Art Museum, had expanded and renovated their space in order to provide three brand new wings, a café, space for arts education programs, a museum store, offices, and collection care facilities. After the expansion, the Museum was gifted a large donation of rare classic books with the original publisher bindings—and quickly realized that even with the renovated space, they had no place to put the 40 to 50 boxes they were given.
