Museums are as rich and varied as the collections they care for. Front of house or behind the scenes, analyzing artefacts and their materials, protecting cultural heritage or engaging the public in the fascinating science of conservation, microscopes and advanced imaging techniques will help you showcase your museum as the special place it is.
You may be an archaeologist or historian, restorer or scientist, or all those things rolled into one. Microscopes help you understand objects and the materials they’re made from. Is it the real thing or a clever imposter? Studying an object close-up will help you answer that question. Care and conservation are continuous processes.
Precious artefacts and works of art derive great value from their base materials, but excessive handling over time can cause damage. Microscope systems offer state-of-the art solutions that are sensitive, non-
invasive and virtually contact-free, accurately representing structures and providing the necessary data for authoritative documentation.
You need superb optics to see objects properly, whether live or inert. When investigating many objects or large ones, you need imaging solutions that are portable and easy to use.
You also want to attract new audiences and hold their attention. Interactivity is the key. Microscopes are a great way to deliver exciting, hands-on experiences for your visitors, allowing people to immerse themselves in captivating worlds of diminutive life-forms and miniature material vistas. Explore the exquisite architecture of a flower or a flea, a flake of surface paint or a speck of gilding. Microscopes integrate well with curated exhibitions and permanent displays. They offer enthralling new layers to the audience experience – something your visitors will come back for again and again.
