Home Planning your visit Museum Guidelines

Visitors

Visitors are welcome to use hand-held cameras and video recorders for non-commercial photography, however permission must be obtained from the Museum for the use of tripods (and commercial photography).

Photography and filming are not permitted in the temporary exhibition galleries on the second floor, the Roper and Wirth galleries.

For conservation reasons, we do not allow the use of flash photography.

We cannot allow photography or filming of some loan items; these are clearly indicated by the symbol below.

No photography symbol

Event Photography

If you would like to have wedding or other important event photos taken within or grounds or galleries please contact us to discuss how we can help privatehire@holburne.org

Commercial Film and Photography

Although the Holburne is in part an old building and a sensitive location, this hasn’t stopped us accommodating feature films, fashion shoots, dances and many other smaller programmes for television.

The Museum site offers a wide choice of visuals, from our beautiful gardens to the magnificent Picture Gallery.

For all commercial photography and film enquiries please contact our Press Office media@holburne.org
