From Arboretums to Wines - Markel's customized Museums Insurance coverage helps preserve your organization's vitality
Whether your museum is a private or public organization, Markel Specialty's museum insurance program is specially designed to support nonprofit 501(c)3 museums, historic homes, art organizations, libraries, and cultural centers.
We know the museum insurance business which means we understand that your policy needs to include museum specific coverages as needed. For instance, we can provide all-risk coverage for your collection and changing exhibitions, including protection for temporary and long-term loans including transit both to and from the museum. This includes property of a fine art nature and other bona fide works of rarity, historical value, or artistic merit.
We currently insure many types of museums and collections including:
- Botanical gardens
- Cultural history
- Fine arts
- Geology history
- Living history
- Historical society
- Living history
- Natural history
Please note we are unable to provide coverage for zoos or aquariums in this program.
More than just your valuable collections need insurance protection.
We can help protect your museum from all kinds of liability and property claims.
Markel has partnered with vendors to provide discounted services to our insureds.
Markel's loss control library is full of information, pointers, and guidelines for maintaining a safer environment.
