During Open Hours (10 am to 5 pm)

All photography, for personal or commercial use, is not permitted in the Museum without a photography permit from MMAM, unless clearly stated by signs in individual galleries. If you are uncertain if photography is permitted in a specific gallery, please ask a MMAM staff member before taking any photos.  

Commercial or personal photography shoots must be scheduled in advance and require a permit, liability waiver, and a Museum staff escort. Photography must not be disruptive to other visitors, block hallways or emergency exits. The Museum reserves the right to cancel any photography shoot which is deemed to be disruptive to other visitors. For commercial or personal photography inquiries, please contact MMAM’s Events Manager, Julie Heukeshoven at jheukeshoven@mmam.org or (507) 474-1815.

No live floral arrangements or any other props are allowed in the galleries. “Selfie sticks” are not permitted in the Museum. Flash photography, additional lighting, and tripods are not allowed without special permission.

For media-related filming or photography, please contact MMAM’s Communications Manager, Caitlin Crouchet at ccrouchet@mmam.org (507) 474-1810 to schedule an appointment.

After Hours/Mondays

  • Stay on the garden paths or pavement at all times. Our gardens include the native prairie grasses, and any trampled grasses will be considered property damage. Do not pick flowers or other vegetation.

  • Please note you are being video recorded by security cameras.

  • Permits allow for the limited use of public spaces only.

  • Photography must not be disruptive to other visitors or block walkways.

  • Publicly shared photos must credit the Minnesota Marine Art Museum as the location.
