Photo policy

The Old Capitol Museum encourages our visitors to take photos for personal use.  We ask that all photography equipment is hand-held and does not obstruct any path within the museum. 

In general, flash photography is allowed inside the museum.  However, in some cases, the preservation of objects and artwork or the requirements of exhibit partners mean we must restrict photography or prohibit flash photography in temporary exhibits.  We appreciate your compliance with posted restrictions.

Professional photography, including wedding photographs inside the building, requires special arrangements with museum staff and may incur a fee depending on the project and the equipment necessary.  Please contact the event coordinator, Shereena Honary, to discuss your needs and make arrangements.  This ensures that photography doesn't interfere with scheduled tours, class visits, or other events. In all cases, photographers are expected not to obstruct museum visitors or interfere with our regular operations.
