While we strive to accommodate all requests in a timely manner, please be aware that we cannot accommodate members of the media who “drop by” on the weekends without previous contact. All reporters, photographers, videographers, and freelance writers on assignment are requested to check in at an Information Desk upon arrival.

Members of the media must be accompanied by a TMA staff member when inside Museum buildings. Outdoor photography shoots may be unaccompanied, if previously cleared through the Marketing Communications Office. Photography is generally not permitted in our contemporary galleries and special exhibitions. However, exemptions may be made for certain approved media purposes.

Due to the delicate nature of our collection, additional light sources may not be permitted in certain galleries. When covering a TMA story during public hours, we ask that you not disrupt our visitors’ experience. Tripods and bags/backpacks must be approved prior to Museum entry.
