Proposing an exhibition

All proposals must fulfill our corporate aims, and show or reflect our collections as far as possible. We recommend that you visit the Horniman prior to sending in your proposal.

Donating an object

If you are interested in donating an object to the Horniman, please contact us first. All new acquisitions must align with our Collections Policy.

Our Collections Policy is focused on the areas we are collecting in, reflecting the Horniman’s aims, so we are not able to guarantee that your donation would be accepted. Our staff will be able to advise you, following a discussion about the object, on whether it could be donated to us.

Please read our Collections Policy, and in particular the sections:

  • about acquisition; and
  • the collecting priorities for each of our collections in the appendix

before making an enquiry about donating an object.

Once you have read through the Policy, please contact us through the form or email address above.
