Beginning the journey to developing a police museum

Our first exhibit project was the museum design, development and installation of a display of historic and modern firearms. Titled “Weapon Systems,” the exhibit is a glass case of wall-mounted handguns, rifles and specialty weapons (including a taser, stun grenade and gas gun).

Custom-designed barrel mounts blend into the environment, putting the focus on the firearms — the pieces seem to float on a white birch wood back panel printed with a technical diagram of a Glock. The light-colored wood board provides the perfect contrast to the black metal of the guns.

OtherWisz worked with the Cheektowaga Police Department’s Range Master to develop the informational panels. Our research highlighted the history and technical details of the firearms to provide an educational and visually interesting museum design.
