Photo & Video Policy

Visitors to Carnegie Museum of Art may photograph the works of art owned by the museum, but those photographs may be used only for personal enjoyment and study. They may not be reproduced, published, televised, used on the Internet or web, or sold in any form. 

Works on loan to the museum cannot be photographed or videotaped. The label identifying the work of art will specify if the object is from Carnegie Museum of Art’s collection. Art objects in special exhibitions are on loan to the museum and may not be photographed. Security officers can assist visitors in determining if a work of art is on loan. 

Only handheld cameras with attached standard flash equipment are allowed. No auxiliary flash, lighting equipment, tripods, or video cameras are permitted because of potential damage to the artwork. Learn more about Rights & Reproductions.
