Touring exhibitions bring collections and curatorial research to new audiences, and can even make money for museums, but they are not cheap to produce.

The latest edition of Museum Practice looks at how new ways of working is allowing museums to continue to tour shows, through collaborations, partnerships and strategic planning.

Although many UK tours may do no more than break even, Museum Practice shows how museums can identify all costs and aim to make a profit.

The articles also explore the opportunities that come with taking exhibitions abroad and shares how some museums are looking at the potential of new overseas markets.

There are also a selection of case studies from a range of museums.
