As certified and incurable “museum nuts”, the Exhibit Guys offer you more than great exhibits for sale.  Our years on staff at prestigious institutions like the New York Hall of Science, Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose, and Flandrau, The University of Arizona Science Center, give us a wide range of insider know-how to call on when you need advice.

We offer a practical, hands-on approach to exhibit development, resting on a simple principle: if your staff isn’t crazy about your exhibits, then your audience isn’t likely to care for them either.  If you need a fresh voice at a charrette, help writing a winning proposal, exhibit labels that read like fables, or a list of the 10 worst traveling exhibitions ever, put an Exhibit Guy on your team today.  Our fees are reasonable, our solutions feasible, and our jokes, mildly risible.

To sample some Exhibit Guy philosophy for absolutely no charge, you might like to consult the archives of an email discussion groups where Joe and Tom are occasional participants.  Or better yet, subscribe and join the discussion!
