Norwegian History Museum
Project Briefing and Building Overview: The museum is one of Norway's largest museums of cultural history, and the museum building, built in 1904, is a splendid example of Art Nouveau, richly decorated with a rare mix of Norwegian and international elements. This history museum is a treasure trove, showcasing Norway's historical and cultural heritage, as well as the folklore and traditions of different parts of the country, from the Stone Age to modern times. The museum's exhibitions cover various historical periods from prehistoric times to modern times. It contains a large number of collections and exhibits, including farmhouses, churches, civilian ships, crafts, artwork, clothing, and furniture. One of the main features of the museum is its outdoor exhibits, known as the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, Norsk Folkemuseum. In this exposition park, you can see restored historic buildings and learn about architectural styles and lifestyles from different eras across Norway. Visitors can feel the atmosphere of past life here and learn about the traditions and culture of the Norwegian people.
The museum showcases have extremely high requirements in terms of manufacturing. Not only needs to provide sufficient display space but also has the function of temperature and humidity adjustment. At the same time, it is also necessary to consider anti-theft and anti-shock and plan different cultural relic protection functions and environments according to different types of exhibits. The safety of cultural relics is very important because the display showcase is in direct contact with the cultural relics. If the materials used are rich in chlorine, sulfur, or other acidic components, they will inevitably cause harm to the cultural relics.
Common museum showcase materials include:
1. Cold-rolled steel plate: Cold-rolled steel plate is one of the most common materials, favored for its sturdiness and reliability, suitable for exhibits that display heavier, more expensive, or more historical value.
2. Tempered glass: Tempered glass has the characteristics of impact resistance and explosion resistance. It is often used in the glass panel of the showcase to protect the exhibits from dust, audience touch, or external environment.
3. Acrylic/plexiglass: Acrylic is a light and impact-resistant transparent material. For larger exhibits or showcases that need to be moved frequently, acrylic is often used to replace glass.
4. Wood: Wooden showcases are suitable for some exhibits, especially museums that need to display ancient or traditional artworks, and wood can be customized according to needs.
5. Aluminum alloy: Aluminum alloy is a lightweight but strong material, often used to make showcase frames or support structures.
6. Plastic/polymer: For special exhibition needs, such as temporary exhibitions or children's exhibitions, plastic or polymer materials may be used to make showcases.
Therefore, when choosing a display showcase, in addition to meeting the basic requirements, it is also necessary to ensure that the materials used in the display showcase match the cultural relics to avoid damage to the cultural relics. Different museums may adopt different material combinations according to exhibit types and exhibition requirements to ensure the best display effect and the safety protection of exhibits. At the same time, factors such as environmental conditions, fire protection requirements, and climate control of exhibition spaces need to be considered when designing museum exhibits.
The design principles of a science and technology museum display showcase involve exhibit safety, visibility, interactivity, storytelling, flexibility, and aesthetics. Appropriate application of these principles can create an attractive exhibition space, stimulate visitors' interest in technology and science, and enable them to have a richer and deeper experience when visiting a science and technology museum.
