Photo & Video Policy

Visitor Photography

Visitors to Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are encouraged to capture and share still photography for personal, noncommercial use. Only handheld cameras with attached standard flash equipment are allowed. No auxiliary flash, lighting equipment, or tripods are permitted. Handheld video cameras are permitted in Carnegie Museum of Natural History only.  

Please be aware that some special exhibitions, galleries, and individual artworks may have restrictions on photography due to loan and copyright requirements. Refer to the floor plan for galleries and exhibitions in which photography is not permitted; individual artworks with photography restrictions are marked by a symbol on the label.

Please be respectful of other visitors while taking photographs. Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are not responsible for any uses of visitor photography that infringe upon third-party copyrights.
