Temporary/flexible exhibits can be updated, meaning museums can better respond to their communities and even engage them in the storytelling.
More time and money can be spent on developing new exhibits rather than on expensive permanent structures.
Temporary exhibits keep staff and museum showcase manufacturers involved.
They present a great opportunity to bring in your community to celebrate as each new temporary exhibit opens (similar to art gallery openings).
Temporary exhibits often lack the impact that permanent exhibits generate.
Frequently changing exhibits put demands on staff to create new exhibits, which may be difficult to achieve with a small staff.
Temporary exhibits can look repetitive and visually predictable.
