Playing host to unique textiles and historical artifacts, as well as a diverse range of temporary exhibitions.


One of the thrilling temporary exhibitions to decorate the halls of the Victorian era museum in the centre of Paisley was called ‘Light Fantastic’.  The exhibit showcased archival pieces from the museum’s Science and Nature collection. This included scientific instruments and other objects of antiquity, along with microscope samples and lantern slides.

ICL Tech was approached to develop a design for, and fabricate the bespoke illuminated displays, which showcased the microscope and lantern slides. The team at ICL assisted material selection and design for manufacturability.
