Filming and photography in the museum

On presentation of your press card, you can visit both temporary and permanent exhibitions free of charge. If you decide to cover the museum, we request that you keep us informed. Before filming or taking photographs in the museum, please contact the PR, Communications, and Marketing Department. This will give the museum an opportunity to prepare for your visit and respond to your wishes. For more information about image rights and the use of press photographs, please consult our acknowledgements page.


We are always open to discussing the use of the museum as a film location or for making commercial films, in return for a reasonable fee. Please keep in mind, however, that the museum is open to visitors six days a week. In general, Monday is the only day available for this type of filming. Again, we kindly request that you contact the PR and Marketing Department well beforehand (at least five working days in advance): tel. +31 (0)71 5163 164, or e-mail: stuur een e-mail.
