A quality museum model should be educational, engaging and relevant. While some museums are known for their collections of original artifacts, many more use replicas, dioramas, props, scale models,or hands-on exhibits to educate and entertain their visitors. Exhibit companies design these spaces to maximize a particular museum’s goals, and our model makers are called upon to create what goes into these spaces.
At KiwiMill, we believe a museum model is especially satisfying to make, as it requires diligent research, the highest-end materials, flawless craftsmanship and great attention to detail. The goal of a museum model is similar to other scale models in that it must delight, educate and inform. It comes with added responsibility to portray a certain place, artifact or moment in time with great fidelity and authenticity. A museum model is also built with the expectation that it is going to be around for a long time to come.
KiwiMill’s models can be found in museums in NYC, Washington, DC, Tennessee, Louisiana and various other parts of the States. They have included dioramas, reproductions, architecture and topographies. We relish the opportunity to support museums who are the caretakers of the past, present and future.
