3 Components of Great Museum Exhibit Design

When it comes to creating a museum exhibit design that exceeds expectations, nobody does it better than Design Display does – but what makes our designs so successful? Let’s take a look at 3 components of great museum exhibit design!

The Emotional Component

The first element of successful museum exhibit design is reaching your target market on an emotional level. This is usually done by incorporating storytelling techniques, because visitors have a more profound experience when they are engaged with a story as opposed to simply being presented with facts. More than anything, you want this experience to be something they’ll remember!

The Intellectual Component

One of the main reasons people visit a museum is to learn something. You want to educate them, but you also need to avoid an information overload! Don’t overcomplicate things and make the information you’re presenting clear and understandable. You don’t need to talk down to your audience, but you also don’t want them to get overwhelmed and tune out!

The Physical Component

This part is something few people notice, but that’s kind of the point. A great museum exhibit incorporates a smooth circulation pattern and a sequence of exhibits that make sense, hold visitor attention, and transition smoothly. Even the signage is important, as you want visitors to move from one thing to the next without having to wonder where they’re supposed to go.
