Touring exhibitions are an important aspect of our museums' international activity, allowing them to share world-class collections and research with audiences all over Europe and the world. We are working with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, Border Force, and museums which regularly transport cultural objects to fully understand the current operating environment and what systems may need to be maintained or introduced to ensure exhibitions can continue to tour as smoothly as possible after the UK leaves the EU.
