Thousands of people visit museums each and every day around the world; but many don’t think about the work and detail that goes into a museum display design. It takes a lot of hard work and planning to create something that will be memorable and dazzling. Here are just a few design tips that must be followed:
Motivate visitors: You must attract enough attention that people will want to see more
Captivate curiosity: Peak visitors’ curiosity enough that they will want to learn more about the exhibit
Interaction: Make the exhibit a hands-on experience for visitors so they can better understand the display
Immersion: Capture visitors’ attention by using story telling techniques
Focus content: Don’t give your visitors an information overload; give them laser-focused, concise and clear information
Modularity: Use themes without being too complex.
Layer your content: Use hierarchical information to teach people about your display
Patterns: Integrate eye-pleasing, circular patterns into your display. Use colors that people will resonate with
Integrate technology into your display: Each element should have a dose of technology. This will enhance the experience and give your visitors the information they need quickly
So, how is all of this accomplished? If your organization does not have the resources or the skill to design a museum display, there are third party companies that can. Professional designers can help create a display that defines exactly what you want to say, what you want to convey to your visitors and do so in a memorable way.
These designers will consult with you to learn more about what you want people to learn about your display, and will integrate your own vision and creative ideas with theirs to develop something that people won’t soon forget.
