Subject: Vibration

Does anyone know of methods for securing objects in churches or
museums (e.g. showcases) from vibrations caused by traffic, building
works, etc.? At the moment I am trying to find preventive methods to
protect a baroque church altar (height 15 meters) against vibrations
caused by blasting during tunnel-building under the church. Later
there will be trains driving through the tunnels and probably
producing more--and different types of--vibrations. Can anybody tell
me about their experiences and provide concrete examples of
vibration absorbers in use to protect cultural heritage?
