Entomology, fossils, geology, herbarium, and botany specimen collections require various museum storage cabinets for protection and preservation. Museum cabinets come with special trays that allow easy access and safe handling of specimens. For extra protection, museums may use glass-fronted cabinets to display or store delicate items. Glass door cabinets help to control the environment around the specimen by preventing dust and other contaminants from coming into contact with it. In addition, glass door cabinets provide a clear view of the specimen, making it easier to identify and study. Visit our online store to see our museum storage products.
