Loans

Exhibition Loans

The Division of Anthropology loans objects to museums and AMNH-approved exhibition venues. Exhibition loan requests are made in writing to the appropriate curator no less than 9 months in advance of the desired loan period, and are accompanied by an AAM facilities report, prior to consideration by the Loan Committee.

Due to the multi-year restoration of our Northwest Coast Hall, the Division of Anthropology has reluctantly instituted a temporary moratorium on exhibition loans. While we are currently facilitating a very limited number of loan requests that were received before the moratorium went into effect, we are unable to consider new requests. The temporary moratorium will most likely be in effect until 2020.

Study Loans

The Division of Anthropology loans objects to researchers with institutional affiliations for study and/or destructive analysis. Study loan requests are made in writing to the appropriate curator no less than 3 months prior to the expected delivery, and are accompanied by a detailed project description, prior to consideration by the Loan Committee.
