The Ashmolean offers a range of exhibitions for hire.

All our touring exhibitions are drawn from the Ashmolean's prestigious collections of Art and Archaeology and based on original research. Our touring exhibitions team will provide expert assistance with all aspects of the exhibition, from the planning stages to the installation and beyond. We aim to build long term, mutually beneficial relationships with our touring partners.

The Ashmolean’s extraordinary collection contains around 275,000 prints and drawings. These works on paper fade quickly when exposed to light and are extremely fragile, making it impossible to keep them on permanent display. Many of the Ashmolean’s touring exhibitions offer venues and their audiences rare access to expertly curated selections of these beautiful and significant drawings, watercolours, and prints by a wide range of important artists.

"Our visitor's book is absolutely brimming with amazing comments – honestly the best we’ve ever had"
