For venues located outside of the United States, National Geographic offers digitally delivered content packages.

For partners located within the United States, a printed and crated exhibition will be shipped to your venue, ready to hang.


To book a traveling exhibition, fill out the booking request form. A member of our traveling exhibitions team will respond within one business day to discuss your venue’s interest, to outline fees and logistics including shipping, and to answer any additional questions you may have.

A traveling exhibition manager will walk you through the process of selecting the right exhibition to meet your programmatic goals and space. This includes providing you with detailed object lists with images for your review and reviewing the schedule to find out what is available during your desired time frame.

Cost and Schedule

A typical hosting period is 3-4 months. The loan fee ranges with the size and complexity of the exhibition selected. Please connect with us via the booking request form to discuss specific loan fees and timing as there may be some flexibility.  


Shipping arrangements are made by National Geographic in consultation with the venue and may be included in the exhibition loan fee. If shipping is not included in the loan fee, the exhibitor will pay for the cost of inbound shipping. A list of crates with their sizes and contents are provided to the venue to assist in installation planning. For larger exhibitions where multiple tractor trailers are used, a detailed truck pack plan is provided to the venue in advance to assist in installation preparations and staging plans. The Traveling Exhibitions Manager will identify any manpower and special equipment needs for unloading and loading at the exhibitor’s location.

Installation Requirements

Installation requirements vary considerably depending on the size and complexity of the exhibition. For smaller photography exhibitions, installation may take only a few days with minimal staff. For larger exhibitions with exhibition furniture, audio, visual elements, and artifacts, it may take two weeks. The traveling exhibitions manager will work closely with you and your staff to develop a detailed installation and de-installation plan tailored to your needs and exhibition characteristics.
