Entomology Cabinets

Precision-crafted entomological storage.
Our precision-crafted entomology cabinets provide safe and convenient storage for specimens of all sizes. Designed to accommodate four styles of entomology drawers (Cornell, USNM, California Academy and Smithsonian), our cabinets conform to virtually any need.

As with all our museum cabinets, closed-cell gasket seals and our three-point latching system help ensure protection from dust and other contaminants, and a non-off-gassing powder-coat paint finish provides durability and a clean appearance. Doors easily lift off hinges, providing a convenient way to clean cabinets and reorganize drawers as collections grow.

All our cabinets are manufactured in the USA of solid, heavy-gauge steel with reinforced welded construction.
