Please let us know if you mention us in your blogs by sending an email including the link to email@example.com. We may be able to share some of these on our own channels. Permission must be sought from the Museum for any commercial use or publication.
Film and photography without a tripod for day-to-day reporting is generally permitted outside the building and in the public exhibition spaces. A press ID will give you free entry to the Museum. Film and photography without a press ID or requiring additional equipment (tripods, lighting, sound equipment etc.) always need authorisation. Similarly, film and photography in non-public areas and outside opening hours can only be permitted in agreement with all departments involved and the press office, logistics permitting. A location agreement must be signed. We appreciate if contact is made in advance and are grateful for pointers to online articles as well as deposit copies of printed material that was created in the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
Film and photography for commercial purposes (e.g. advertising, TV and cinema films, photos for magazines, photos of exhibitions and products intended for sale) always require permission.
