While it’s estimated that museums are visited by over 850 million people a year, improving engagement with new generations is one of the biggest challenges museums face in the future. Are you in search of some inspiration to take your museum exhibitions to the next level? Look no further. We’ve put together some tips on turning your exhibits into stunning displays.

Historical museum graphic displays

Famous historical images, scenes and styles are very captivating to museum-goers. This is especially true when you make use of large banners to attract the attention of your audience. In fact, you can easily create and build a theme with several banners. You do this by layering the event, with each banner adding to the scene with specific canvas graphics.

You could also spread one image over several banners to create a feeling of grandeur, in effect using them as wall murals. No matter what you opt for, by using grand format printing you can capture the essence of your museum’s feature exhibit successfully and leave a lasting impression on potential customers.

Make use of bright wall colours in your museum display design

Most museum walls are painted in a standard white colour. This is done with the intention of making any surrounding artwork and art pieces stand out. However, over the years, more and more colour has begun to enter our visual sphere, which can add some much-needed flair and variety to the traditionally staid museum scene. In fact, it’s not uncommon these days to see exhibits making use of brightly painted walls which coordinate with their colour palette. This tends to have a great impact on the message you are attempting to convey as colour combinations can linger in peoples’ minds. If you want, you can make use of coloured backgrounds by creating your own painted temporary wall to create an instant environment change for your museum display design.

Abstract museum display graphics

A subtle way to encourage thought and attract an audience in a less obvious way is the use of inventive abstract art that makes one look twice. These art pieces and images have the ability to be imprinted in a person’s mind. You often find that people want to share this type of experience with others, and this sparks interest in visiting your museum exhibit. The more thought-provoking your overall banner art, the more interest it will gather.
