Museum Flooring – Go Down In History
There’s a lot to see at a museum – artifacts from various military campaigns, a mastodon brought back to life with prosthetics, or a day in the life of our Colonial ancestors. When we visit museums, rarely do we look down when there’s so much awe at eye level and above.
Mountain Lumber has worked with a number of museums across the country, balancing esthetic and durability to these well-visited visual gems. Museums pose a particular challenge for floors. All elements of the design must complement the overall artistic, cultural and historic value of the museum while holding up to thousands of visitors every year.
Our custom floors do just that – add beauty and stand up to heavy traffic. We floored the visitor centers at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Virginia, the South Street Seaport Museum in New York, the Portland Museum of Art in Maine and the Mashantucket Pequot Museum in Connecticut among others.
The art and history aren’t the only stories in these buildings; their floors have a story too.
