What would be an attractive way to display a magnet collection?

since my daughter and family moved they can't put their magnet collection on the fridge. Any clever ideas to display them?

    If you get a nice and big picture frame, you can arrage all the magnets inside and display them in that. It looks pretty cool!

      That sounds really cool! I like the framing idea, then maybe hanging on a wall.

      Thanks for your reply

    I've seen old baking pans hung on the wall to display magnets. Hit your thrift stores or garage sales if you don't have one already. Take a magnet with you to be sure it sticks.

    There is now paint available that will allow you to attach magnets to it! Rustoleum makes it. Apparently you can paint any size you need on a wall. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds interesting.

    You can purchase the metal holders for knifes. Put them on the kitchen wall and place magnets and knifes on the strip.

    We got some of those antique desk drawer things that have lots of different size little "shelves" - it's a printer desk drawer. We put in alot of stuff like magnets and do dads and stuff that I always loved. Many miniature things. Turned out to be a good use for the drawers.
