We understand the appeal our beautiful site provides for a variety of photographers, however we ask that you follow the guidelines outlined below. Anyone being paid for their work is considered a professional photographer, even if it is just a part time job or hobby. This is a museum site and the artifacts and buildings need to be handled with care by knowledgeable MFLM representatives. Click for Photography_Policy download

Commercial and Professional photographers are asked to notify the office prior to visiting to obtain approval, a copy of this policy, and a photography pass. This helps ensure the site is available and that the expectations while on site are clear.
Failure to comply with museum policies and expectations may result in loss of permission to photograph and/or a request to exit the premises.
