What is Museum and Attractions Insurance?
Museum insurance cover is a special type of business insurance tailored to the needs of museums and visitor attractions. Whether you operate a seaside novelty attraction, an independently run heritage site, or a large museum that’s part of a trust, a museum insurance policy provides all the protection you need under a single umbrella. While many of the coverage options required by attraction owners are the same as those required by other businesses, many museums have specific needs when it comes to their business insurance.
For example, because you are constantly working with members of the general public, which will potentially include busloads of children each day, you will need to obtain public liability coverage. Then, anyone who employs exhibition staff or operates through volunteers is required by law to have employer’s liability insurance. As a museum owner, you will also need protection for your stock if you have a gift shop, and not to mention protection for your exhibits themselves, with products liability, fire and theft, property insurance and many other coverage options designed to protect your business and irreplaceable artifacts or exhibits in your care. Property protection is particularly important, as it can also cover any pieces held in trust, which means that if you are entrusted with an item to restore or display that doesn’t belong to you; you still have protection should something go wrong whilst it’s in your care.

Comparison sites are good for personal lines, but with anything business related you can be at high risk of being underinsured. This is because their online forms often only give you the cost based on the information you have added, potentially without any insurance knowledge.
