The Museum strives to be a film-friendly environment; whether it is for press or commercial purposes we try to accommodate all reasonable filming requests.
No-fee filming only applies to coverage of the Museum and/or the collection, including temporary exhibitions and displays or filming that relates to a topical news item.

Commercial filming in the Museum
Filming inside the Museum building requires a greater level of organisation and will therefore incur a charge. Please contact the Broadcast Unit directly for our rates card.
All requests will be handled by the Broadcast Unit, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be advised that no filming may take place in the Museum at weekends.
All film crews will be required to have public liability insurance when filming on site.
