Museum Storage Solutions

Effective museum storage is an interesting and challenging design experience for the sheer variety of items and the special shelving systems required for these priceless objects. Museums have the responsibility to store, display, and archive everything from massive paleontological samples to taxidermy pieces, to small research specimens. Valuable manuscripts, fragile fine art paintings, and on-loan collections may require special security considerations as well.

Aurora has many secure storage systems such as space efficient Times-2 Cabinets, high-density Aurora Mobile, Art-Stor, or sturdy Quik-Lok Shelving. These systems can provide the security required along with advanced storage solutions for museum items including sensitive artifacts, artwork and general multimedia pieces. Our design experts can assess existing museum floor space and recommend the correct product to increase storage in the same amount of area. We are often able to increase storage by over 50%.
