Object Loans

Other museums can borrow our sounds!

Is your institution interested in bringing the culture of sound to your visitors?

Our sound objects are available for loan to other museums!

And the process couldn’t be easier:

You can view a current object list here to get information on every sound object currently on display in our Permanent Collection Galleries.

Alternatively, a member (or members) of your staff could book a visit to the Museum of Portable Sound and listen to objects in our collection that might be of interest to your institution for display.

Once you’ve decided on which object(s) you would like to borrow, simply let us know by using our Contact Form. A member of our staff will be in touch to discuss details of the term of loan and the handing of the object(s) over to your museum.

Object loans are FREE to qualifying institutions.

Need some help?

If your staff are interested in advice on how best to display sound in your museum, you can arrange for a consultation with our Director and Chief Curator for a standard consultation fee. Contact us to learn more about consultations.

So what are you waiting for? Bring the dynamic, cross-disciplinary culture of sound to your visitors today by collaborating with us!


While you’re here…

…we need your help. For four years, we have managed to keep admission to the Museum of Portable Sound free for all. But this model hasn’t proven to be sustainable. If you value what we do, and would like to help us continue to fulfil our mission of bringing the culture of sound to the world one visitor at a time, please consider making a donation or supporting us long-term on Patreon.
