We welcome you to take photographs on site, preferably without a flash as the light can cause damage to artifacts. During events, programs, and sometimes day-to-day, we will also be taking our own photographs and using them for promotion and social media. If you are uncomfortable having your photograph taken when in the museum or at a museum event, please reach out to staff so we can make accommodations.
