In a museum setting, an exhibit refers to a grouping of objects and information that are displayed formally, often in a gallery. Exhibitions can also be presented in other ways, such as in a book or on a computer screen. Exhibitions help to communicate a message or story. They are a way for museums to share the richness of their collections with a broad audience. The goal of an exhibition is to spark discussion, debate, and learning about a specific historical topic or time period.

Museums must engage the public by telling stories that are relevant to their communities and visitors in order to prove that they deserve their tax-exempt status. This requires museums to find new sources, new ways of telling those stories, and new means of making them accessible to the public. This can be done by using new technologies, exploring a range of different formats, and incorporating the voices of people whose histories have been neglected.

An exhibit is a three-dimensional object or artifact displayed formally and publicly, such as a painting on display in a museum or a historical document shown under glass at a history center. Exhibits are part of a broader storytelling framework that includes historical documents, books, maps, films, and multimedia presentations. Exhibits offer a chance for museum visitors to experience a part of the past that they would not otherwise be exposed to and allow them to better understand how that history has shaped our lives today.
