Am I responsible for paying customs, duties and taxes on my international or Canadian delivery?
Yes. International and Canadian order recipients are responsible for any customs, duties, taxes or special fees applied upon delivery by the destination country’s local government. The museum is not responsible for these fees and does not include them in the original shipping quote, nor does the museum pay them once they are incurred. Please note, if the order recipient refuses to pay these fees upon the package’s arrival to their country and the package is returned to the museum, the original shipping charges will not be refunded and return shipping costs will be charged back to the purchaser’s original method of payment.
