National Museums NI actively encourages loans to promote access to and disseminate information about our collections and to connect with the widest possible audience.

We view loans as a collaborative partnership that enables us to maximise access to our collections and will lend locally, nationally and internationally to borrowers that can meet our loan conditions.

National Museums NI’s policy on lending can be found in the Collections Information and Access Policy and the Lending and Borrowing Policy.

In addition the Guide to borrowing from National Museums NI and Loan Charges Schedule (applicable from 1 April 2020) may assist in planning your loan request.

If you have a query about loans please contact Anne Orr, National Museums NI Registrar,, 028 9039 5151 or Aileen McEwen, National Museums NI Assistant Registrar,, 028 9039 5140.
