The Bird Gallery is a permanent exhibition that allows visitors to examine the detail and delicate beauty of close to 450 bird species in their refreshed nesting spot.
This project is a wonderful example for sustainability and durability.
Produced and installed over 10 years ago, the cases are still displaying and protecting the 500 mounted specimens in the permanent Bird Gallery at the Canadian Museum of Nature.
Not only does the exhibit itself still looks new and modern, but the cases are also impeccable from the inside-out.
The largest entrance museum display case was the biggest challenge for this project.
Measuring 13.5 ft. high by 8 ft. wide and 8 ft. deep, this gigantic corner case was to display a flock of birds.
This enormous case was pre-assembled in our shop and tested prior to delivery and installation.
Supplied with a one-piece full-size front door and held by 3 heavy-duty hinges, this impressive display case could be easily opened by a single person.
