Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums allows members of the public to take photographs for personal use, or study, with the exception of areas showing special exhibitions, for the protection of copyright and when conservation may be an issue. No flash photography or tripods are permitted.
Visitors are requested to be aware of the 'No Photography' signs that are located throughout the venues to advise when photography is prohibited.
Prior permission is not required to take photographs for personal use or study. Visitors wishing to take photographs are required to complete a Declaration Form, available at the reception desk. The form states that the photographs taken are for personal use or study only, are not for profit and will not be displayed on any website. It also informs you that it is your responsibility to clear copyright.
Visitors will be issued with an identification badge to indicate that they have completed the form and been granted permission to take photographs. Please be aware of other visitors when taking photographs.
Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums reserves the right to refuse a photography request made by a visitor and staff will inform the visitor of the reasons for the refusal.
