The Royal Museums of Art and History aim to share their collections with a worldwide audience. Hundreds of objects are lent to other museums every year.
Requests for loans have to reach the Museums at least 6 months before the opening date of the exhibition. A written request should be addressed to our general director.
There are conditions connected with borrowing objects. When applying for a loan, we kindly request you to include following information:
- reason for the loan request
- itemized object list with the inventory number
- exhibition dates
- contact in your institution
detailed and recent facility report
All loan requests are discussed during our loan committee, which is held every two months. After approval of the request, you will receive a written confirmation which also includes our conditions connected with the loan. These include for example safety, handling, insurance, transport and climate conditions.
