Rental Procedures

Humanities Texas exhibitions are designed to appeal to institutions of all sizes and budgets, from small community centers with volunteer support to mid-size museums with curatorial staff. Our program offers a wide variety of topics and formats, high-quality content and supplementary materials, easy installation, and low rental fees. Whether you are an art center with a formal gallery space or a teacher with limited classroom space, we have exhibitions that will meet your programming needs.


Exhibition overviews are available online to help you select the best exhibitions for your venue. When you are ready to book an exhibition, contact the exhibitions coordinator. Please have your preferred booking dates and delivery address information available. Confirmation documents will be sent to you once your reservation has been processed.


Rental fees are based primarily on the cost of shipping. Prices may vary based on current fuel surcharges or venue location within the state of Texas. Out-of-state rentals are priced on an individual basis. Exhibition rental periods can be extended at $25 per additional week. Please contact the exhibitions coordinator for a rental fee quote specific to your venue.

Financial Support

Working in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities, Humanities Texas provides financial support to public or private nonprofit organizations for programs that bring humanities scholarship to general audiences.

Humanities Texas mini-grants can provide up to $1,500 of the cost associated with public programs. These small grants are particularly appropriate for the rental of traveling exhibitions. More information about the Humanities Texas grants program and all application materials are available online. Exhibitions must be booked before applying for a mini-grant.
