Museums are among the most important cultural centers in any community and enjoy both public and private support. Whether a museum’s collections consist of art or historical artifacts, the risks that these institutions face are as unique as their exhibits. The need for proper insurance coverage is essential to keeping the doors open and exhibits protected.
