Commercial Photography
and Filming Request

NMB aims to make its material accessible to the public and welcomes research and media interest in the collections. We try to accommodate requests to photograph or film objects whenever possible but we also wish to protect NMB’s intellectual property and the intellectual property of others, and the collections which are in our care and uphold the Museum’s standards and mandate.

If you are a professional photographer or filmmaker, you must complete the online Photography and Filming Request Form.

Anyone photographing or filming Museum collections or exhibits must sign an agreement covering terms, conditions, procedures, and intellectual property rights before photographing or filming. Depending on the scope of your project, fees may apply.

Thank you for your interest in the National Museum of Bermuda (NMB) as your location. The National Museum of Bermuda is a non-government, not-for-profit Bermuda Registered Charity (No. 136) that operates with a small staff. Thus enquiries will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and fees established based on the project’s scope, length, and impact on Museum operations.

To recover costs for staff time and any closure of Museum exhibits, the National Museum of Bermuda has a standard location fee schedule based on the length of time crews will spend in the museum or interviewing staff.

These fees cover the costs incurred by the museum in making its facilities, collections, and staff available. When filming goes beyond eight hours in a day, additional fees may be charged to cover additional staff time and security.

Please be sure to read our Filming and Photography Policies prior to submitting an inquiry. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to

Thank you for filling in all fields below. Our Admin Team will get back to you shortly.
