Picture Library

Whether you are a commercial picture user wanting to reproduce a BMAG image or an individual requesting a one-off copy for reference, study or to hang on your wall, we can help. Many images of our objects can be found online, but contact us if you can't find what you are looking for.

Photography and Filming

You are welcome to take photographs or use a video camera without a tripod in our galleries for personal use (such as a personal website or photo/video-sharing service). As some items in our collection are on loan or may not be suitable for flash photography, our staff can advise you during your visit. Photography may be limited at times due to volume of visitors and is not allowed in areas where children are using the galleries.  

Photography or filming for professional purposes is only permitted with prior arrangement and once all necessary permissions are obtained.
