Origin Story

Museum Trade was born from the love of working in all types of museums. I’ve always riffed with fellow crew, conceiving of both simple and outlandish solutions to exhibit issues.

I was tired of reinventing the wheel to solve these issues so I built Museum Trade for all of us. I wanted a searchable place to go to get inspired, find solutions, and maybe share a laugh along the way.

Museum Trade is a place for the guides and gear that make exhibit life easier. Welcome.

Your ordinary is someone's epiphany

It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out or have decades of experience. There is no tip too small and no trick too subtle. No matter your museum type please share yours so we get better together.
