An Exhibition often uses Museum collection objects (although it doesn't have to) to tell a particular story or explain a particuar idea. Unlike a Display it is usualy of fixed duration.

In Brazil

 In Brazilian context, there is no remarklabe difference between Exhibition and Display terms, since the meanings are pratically the same. However, it is very usual to 'classify' exhibitions by its duration or 'environment', i.e., long-term exhibitions (which meaning approaches the English definition of Dispaly in terms of duration), short-term exhibitions (which meaning is pratically the same of Exhibition presented above in terms of duration), ittinerant exhibitions, that can last for long or short periods, and digital exhibitions, with the same specifications as the itinerant ones.
