Object in Focus: Free short-term loans from the Horniman Museum & Gardens

Object in Focus is a three year project funded by Arts Council England to proactively loan objects out to museums and non-museum venues. Our aim is to increase access to stored collections, promote Smarter Loans and forge links with other museums and cultural organisations.
