Exhibitions on tour

Bradford Museums and Galleries touring exhibitions are a vital part of the Museum Service remit, aiming to promote and increase the interest of the public in contemporary artists and exhibitions and the various collections of Bradford Museums. Bradford's exhibitions have toured extensively around the United Kingdom and some international venues.

Exhibitions are available for hire by venues throughout the United Kingdom and internationally.

We are keen to develop our network of touring partner venues. If you would like more information about Bradford Museums and Galleries Touring Exhibitions please contact:
