International touring exhibitions
A museum of the world for the world
The British Museum aims to share its rich and diverse collection of over eight million objects from across the globe with a worldwide audience, and has developed an extensive programme of touring exhibitions and object loans for this purpose.
Each year, large numbers of objects from the collection travel to museums and galleries outside the UK for temporary exhibition so that visitors can experience a British Museum exhibition at an international partner venue.
