International touring exhibitions and loans
An international Museum
The British Museum has an extensive programme of touring exhibitions and object loans. Each year, large numbers of objects from the collection travel to museums and galleries outside the UK for temporary exhibition.
The international touring exhibitions programme offer visitors a chance to experience a British Museum exhibition at an international venue.
Individual and small groups of objects are regularly loaned to museums around the world.
