Paul Orselli Owner of POW!

We create museum experiences that are engaging, educational, and fun!


Paul Orselli is an inspiration. Paul's enthusiasm, intelligence and creativity combined with his sense of fun make him one of the best exhibit developers with whom I've had the privilege to work. Paul's ability to acknowledge, foster, and encourage his colleagues' talents makes him an ideal team leader.

It was a pleasure working with Paul! His work was professional, creative and thoughtful. I would be happy to hire Paul in the future or recommend him to colleagues.

Paul Orselli is one of the most resourceful and creative people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. After a long career in the museum industry, he still continues to come up with fresh and creative solutions.

I was amazed how Paul was able to help our program staff move from program design to exhibit design in just a few days. We created and tested prototypes quickly and several ended up in a final iteration in an exhibition a few months later. His workshop gave us a shared vocabulary and process we can use again and again.

Working with a small budget?

We’ll help you stretch your resources and explore museum exhibit design possibilities that you didn’t think you could afford. Check out our Free Exhibit Resources with information you'll be able to use right away.

Have a crazy idea that you can’t figure out?

How do I turn this idea into an exhibit? Breaking through “exhibit block” is one of our favorite challenges. Take a look at our Exhibit Design Portfolio to see some examples.

Tired of boring exhibits?

We know how to “turbo charge” your ideas without sacrificing your content goals. Click here to see some examples from our Flickr page.
