An art museum is a place for collecting and displaying works of art. Its main purposes are research, education, and appreciation. The art museum must not only meet the needs of exhibitions, but also bring a good visual experience to visitors, so it must create good visual effects, and the display cabinets and lighting environment are directly related to the visitors' viewing experience. The main function of the showcase is to ensure the safety of the exhibits, focusing on its practicality, beauty and intelligence. With the advancement of display cabinet technology, the overall operation capabilities of modern display cabinets are getting stronger and stronger, and the opening methods are becoming more and more convenient. The basic design requirements are that the showcases are detachable, reusable, and flexible, and can be designed according to different display themes and the number and characteristics of exhibits. The multifunctionality of showcases, enhancing their artistic effects and immersive interactive experience, and improving their recycling rate are the practical needs and development trends of contemporary showcase design.The expression forms of exhibition spaces are becoming more and more diverse and diversified. Lighting design must not only meet the needs of lighting and decoration, but also meet the visual comfort and emotional needs of the audience. By analyzing and summarizing the influencing factors of visual comfort of exhibition space lighting, we established exhibition space lighting design guidelines based on visual comfort,The goal is to improve the lighting quality of the display space and create an emotionally resonant visual experience in the display space. Therefore, creating a good visual atmosphere for the audience is the development trend of gallery display space lighting design in the future.
