Museum Insurance


Insuring your museum is about much more than making sure your premises and displays are covered. Just as the exhibits you display are unique, the insurance policy they rightfully command should be too.

Every museum will have different requirements, meaning a standard insurance policy may not offer the required protection. Our museum insurance is ideally suited to independent, local authority, historic houses and contemporary museums that need to protect their assets as well as their staff.

We work with you to source the most appropriate museum insurance policy for your needs, understanding that we need to be flexible and professional throughout.

In order to achieve that goal here at Alan & Thomas, we have a dedicated Heritage Insurance team who specialise in insuring museums and your unique exhibits. Our expert advisers understand the specific needs associated with museum insurance and the difficulties around valuing artefacts. They will get to know how you run your museum and offer advice on relevant insurance cover.  

As an independent insurance broker, we work closely with a number of the UK’s leading insurers in the field of heritage insurance and can tailor the policy to suit your individual needs. Our museum insurance can offer you the right cover at a competitive price.
