Type Suggestions for Exhibit Display Paragarphs

I’m working on an exhibit project and I was hoping for input on typefaces that hold up well in large size (36pt+) paragraph settings.

I’m curious if there are any typefaces designed specifically for this type of application.

Is the large size due to the type being viewed from a distance? If that’s the case you should treat the problem as a “normal” text setting issue (and factoring in the distance to get the ideal point size). Otherwise I guess you’re doing it for effect, since very large type can’t really be read effectively (at normal reading distances).
