Any idea on how to repair a broken part of a Lego store display? Please Help

I recently purchased this display off of eBay and unfortunately this part broke during shipping. If anyone can tell me the material the clear strip is made, or how you have repaired a similar issue I would really appreciate it. If it is acrylic I can repair this quite quickly, but I want to be 100% sure before I buy the solvent to bond pieces of acrylic.

    Looks like plexiglass to me. As it broke at its weakest point, and it has to carry quite a bit of weight, I would get another piece of plexiglass and glue it on top of the old one. This would also have the added benefit of making the piece stronger.

    I would go for transparent super glue.

    Yeah I though it was acrylic. Now I need to get a solvent to fuse the pieces together.

    try dichloromethane (DCM, or methylene chloride)
