Loans

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.
