Artifact and sculpture storage is an essential consideration for museums. These items are often delicate and require special care to preserve them. The type of storage will also vary depending on the item. For example, a stone sculpture may need to be stored in a dry environment, while a metal sculpture may need a cool, dark place.

Artifact Storage for Museums

With many museums facing the additional challenge of limited storage space as their collections grow, finding room to store each artifact properly may seem impossible. Fortunately, our many specialized storage solutions can safely store your unique artifacts and sculptures while making the most of your existing storage capacity.

Stores a Variety of Artifacts

Ancient Artifacts – Ancient artifacts are some of the world’s most fragile and irreplaceable items. To ensure their preservation for future generations, they must be stored properly. Ancient pottery, for example, is susceptible to damage from changes in temperature and humidity. Antique weapons and jewelry can also be delicate, often stored in similar conditions. By taking proper care of these artifacts, museums can help ensure their longevity and protect them for future generations. Our storage systems are the solutions to do just that!

Historical ArtifactsHistorical artifacts are irreplaceable evidence of the people and cultures of the past. They provide insight into the lives of our ancestors and offer a window into the history of our world. We offer climate-controlled storage, which helps to protect the artifacts from humidity, light, and temperature fluctuations. We also provide unique storage methods, such as wrapping flags in acid-free paper.
