Museum Storage

We know your stuff is priceless.

Museums help us understand and appreciate the dynamic nature of our cultural, political and economic landscape. They are the keepers of important artifacts, stewards of art and archives and play a critical role in educating communities about history and how it shapes our current world and future progress. All this involves collecting, cataloging, storing, displaying and conserving a lot of stuff.

If there is ever a museum dedicated to storage solutions, these solutions are sure to be in there:

Museum staff need to keep stuff efficiently organized so that it remains accessible to curators, researchers, patrons and the rest of the community. But the collection also needs to be preserved and protected. Patterson Pope Museum Storage meets those challenges while also helping museum administrators navigate space and budget constraints (because what museum doesn’t have those, right?)

Textiles or tiger heads, submarine hatches or snake skulls, comics or costumes, torpedoes or paintings, Patterson Pope has experience customizing solutions for all these and more. We’re in our sixth decade helping institutions as varied as The Kentucky Derby Museum, the World of Coca-Cola Museum and the Cincinnati Art Museum address museum storage challenges. Talk with our experts today to learn how we can help your timeless collections stay that way.

Flat Files

“Flat files?” said our Marketing Director, “Do you think we can jazz that name up a little bit? I mean they’re built with extra rigid construction and stainless-steel tracks and rollers. Real smooth drawers. Trouble-free operation. Nothing flat or dull about them. They’re awesome. They literally belong in a museum.”

Well, he’s not wrong. He’s just a little crazy. So if you talk to him, please ask him about our Jazzy files.
