Loans Catalogue

From 2023 to 2027, we are working on two major projects to improve access, display and storage for our collections. 

As a result, we are making some changes to our outgoing-loans request process during this period. 

Loan requests submitted by 31 October 2023

We welcome all loans requests in the usual way — take a look at our Loans Policy to find out more.

Loans-out programme: 1 November 2023 onwards

While we are preparing for our refurbishment project, we will continue to make selected parts of our collection available to institutions for research and display.

If you are making a loans request on or after 1 November 2023, take a look at our Loans-out Catalogue to review the objects available, then check our Loans-out document and Loans Policy for instructions on how to apply.
