The Royal Air Force Museum lends objects to museums and galleries in the United Kingdom and around the world.

The RAF Museum shares the story of the RAF through the objects in our collection and is keen to make these objects publicly accessible. As the collection is extensive, we are unable to put all of the objects on display at our two public sites. Loans are, therefore, important in helping us make the national collection as widely accessible as possible.

Please ensure all fields of this form are completed. Additionally, all loans must be accompanied by completed UK Registrars Group (UKRG) reports, any incomplete forms will not be accepted as formal loan applications. 

Please note: For requests from UK based institutions we require six months’ and from international institutions we require 12 months’ advance notice to ensure we can undertake all the work necessary to administer the loan. The maximum period for any loan agreement is 3 years and is subject to renewal.  

For RAF personnel, offices and stations wishing to loan objects, please get in touch with Erica Ferguson at RAF Heritage Branch in the first instance to discuss your requirements.
