Loan of Objects

The Museum of Cultural History (MCH) loans objects on the following conditions: that they will not be harmed; that the MCH is not using them for research or exhibition purposes at the time of the requested loan; and that the MCH has resources available for the project. Objects will not be lent out for commercial purposes or other activities that conflict with the ethical principles of the museum. All loans are time limited, but the borrower  may apply for an extended loan. The MCH exercises the right to reject applications on the basis of these conditions. Applications for loans must arrive the museum no later than 8 months before the exhibition opening.

Loan applicants are directed to the General rules and conditions for loan and the Application form (please see the right menu).

Applications for loans will be processed 4 times a year.
