Museum Insurance

Insurance for museums by Prosura

No matter whether you manage a large museum housing artifacts of national importance, or a small, volunteer run community museum, you face some unique insurance challenges. How do you value your artifacts accurately? How do you protect items that are loaned to you for display? What do you do about items not on display for a period that are securely stored?

Getting the right insurance for a museum can be complex. But that’s where we come in. Prosura offer friction free access to policies from leading providers, backed by jargon free advice. It’s our job to arrange your insurance, so that you can get on with the day job of curating exhibits that see visitors coming back time after time.

What insurance covers does a museum need?

Naturally, the most important assets for a museum are the exhibition pieces themselves. Whether paintings, an interactive display or a historic outdoor site, the things people actually come to see will need to be protected with the appropriate museum insurance.

We will work with you to establish an agreed valuation for your exhibits. We will also work with you to review valuations regularly because these may accrue or vary significantly over time.

We can work with you to protect items that you own, as well as anything that you have on short- or long-term loan. We can provide cover for exhibits on the premises as well as away – for example if you were showing items off site at a show or even another museum.

What else should be considered when buying insurance for a museum?

In addition to cover for the items themselves, you will have a range of other considerations to make. Does your museum have a café or gift shop? Is the building itself of special interest and listed? Do you have employees and volunteers giving site tours? Whatever your particular circumstances, Prosura can arrange cover that will protect every aspect of the business.
