Exhibit designers plan, develop, and produce physical displays for exhibitions at museums and similar institutions. They work closely with museum directors, educators, curators, and conservators to create educational exhibits that focus on portions of a museum's collection while maintaining secure and safe environmental conditions for the objects on display. Exhibit designers prepare both temporary and permanent exhibitions for a broad range of museum audiences. There are approximately 11,000 set and exhibit designers working in the United States.
