They partner with museum directors, curators, conservators, architects, exhibition designers and building contractors to help enhance visitors’ experience.

Testimonials

“The packing and transport was undertaken with great care and all of the cases arrived in excellent condition. During the showcase installation period I was very happy with the high standard of work and the positive attitude of the installation team on site. They did a great job and were flexible and professional in their approach during the installation.”

“The Ashmolean Museum has worked with Meyvaert on a variety of projects over the last 7 years to great success. Meyvaert have consistently delivered on time and to the highest quality. It is their combination of customer services, adaptability and quality that makes them a pleasure to work with and we look forward to doing so again in the future.”

Harry Phytian-Adams Executive Officer at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology

“We have found Meyvaert to be a good company to work with: very responsive to our needs and willing to try their utmost to meet our – often extremely tight – deadlines. The Infinity cases themselves provide an excellent means of display, with the option of shelving and various lighting solutions, coupled with the ability to be put together in various formations.”

“We confirm that Meyvaert was the main Contractor for the execution of the exhibition material for the Special Collections Gallery, the Asian Pavilion and the 20th Century Gallery of the new Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The total surface area of the exhibition was approximately 14500 m2. Meyvaert completed the works within the time frame and to the museum’s full satisfaction.”

Ir. Ing. Raphaël Ph. van Amerongen b.i. Project Manager Museum Interior at the Rijksmuseum

“From the beginning stages to the final execution, the Meyvaert team knew how to respond to our wishes and how to best adapt the project to meet our expectations. I would like to emphasize in particular the quality of the delivered items, from a technical as well as an aesthetic point of view: the care taken with the selection of materials, the precision with which they have been combined and the elegance of the finishes.”
