China Grand Canal Museum

What expertise do you need to consider when choosing display showcases for display versus water-based artifacts?

China Grand Canal Museum


Project Briefing and Building Overview: The museum is located in Yangzhou City, China, and is an important historical and cultural site dedicated to showcasing and preserving the rich history and cultural heritage of the Grand Canal. As one of ancient China's most significant waterborne transportation routes, the Grand Canal connected the north and south regions, playing a crucial role in promoting economic exchange, cultural dissemination, and societal development. Within the museum, a diverse array of artifacts and exhibits are displayed using various methods such as physical objects, images, multimedia, and more, vividly presenting the Grand Canal's historical evolution, navigation technologies, the landscapes along its banks, and its close ties to Yangzhou City.

The museum is divided into multiple exhibition areas, encompassing themes such as the origin and development of the Grand Canal, cultural exchanges, and notable cities along its course.

The display and preservation of waterborne artifacts constitute a crucial aspect of museum work. The careful selection of display showcases is vital not only for effectively showcasing the historical value and cultural significance of artifacts but also for providing an appropriate environment to ensure their protection from damage. In the museum context, the choice of display showcases is closely related to the characteristics of waterborne artifacts and involves the following key professional considerations:

1. Material Selection: Waterborne artifacts often encompass materials like metal, ceramics, and glass. Therefore, the choice of display case materials needs to account for the specific properties of the artifacts to avoid chemical reactions. For instance, materials with corrosion-resistant properties like stainless steel or titanium alloy may be used for constructing display showcases for metal artifacts, while ceramics might require UV-filtering glass or specialized materials.

2. Environmental Control: Given the humid climate along the Grand Canal, the sealing and environmental control of display cases are of paramount importance to prevent artifacts from moisture and oxidation. Display cases should be equipped with a constant temperature and humidity system to maintain stable conditions conducive to preservation.

3. Lighting Design: Lighting of artifacts should adhere to principles of soft and even distribution of light to avoid intense direct illumination that could lead to color fading and material damage. LED cool light sources are considered an ideal choice for display showcase lighting.

4. Exhibition Layout: The exhibition layout for waterborne artifacts should be organized based on factors such as artifact type, size, and historical context, ensuring a balanced presentation without overcrowding, and allowing each artifact to be adequately showcased and appreciated.

5. Safety and Security: Display showcases should incorporate theft prevention and protection measures to ensure the safety of artifacts during exhibitions. Implementing features like high-strength protective glass and secure locking mechanisms can effectively enhance artifact security.

6. Interactivity and Presentation Methods: Depending on visitor preferences, display showcases can be designed with interactive elements, incorporating multimedia, touch screens, and other methods to enhance visitor engagement and experiences.

In summary, the choice of display cases significantly impacts the protection, presentation, and continuity of waterborne artifacts. DG Display Showcase combines professional expertise and innovative technologies in its display case solutions, offering substantial support for the display, preservation, and heritage transmission of cultural artifacts. By making well-informed choices in display showcase selection, a safe, aesthetically pleasing, and educationally enriching exhibition environment is created for visitors.
