MUSEUM PHOTOGRAPHY

Upon entering the museum, you may see a posted photography notice. We often work with local media to get the word out about the many fascinating and exciting things happening here, so you may see a camera crew on your visit. We also have photographers on staff taking photos and videos for marketing purposes. If you are uncomfortable being on camera, please inform the member of our staff (designated by a lanyard and/or name tag) who is either taking the photos or accompanying the media so we can respect your wishes.
