Filming and photography

Find out about filming in the Museum, how to get photos of our building and exhibitions, and getting press tickets for exhibition reviews.

Exhibition reviews

Due to the popularity of our exhibitions and events, we can only allocate one press ticket to each accredited journalist that has been commissioned to write a review of an exhibition or event.


The press office has a wide selection of photographs of the Museum's building and exhibitions available for journalists in articles about the Museum. A selection are available to download from Box, upon request.

Please note that all photos are available for press use under the conditions that the copyright The Trustees of the Natural History Museum (unless otherwise specified) is credited. These photos should only be used editorially to promote the Natural History Museum and should not be stored or distributed to third parties.

News filming

If you would like footage of the Natural History Museum or would like to interview one of our scientists or curators on film for a media story, we can make all the arrangements to make sure your crew’s visit runs smoothly.

Documentary and commercial filming

The Museum’s unique building makes it an ideal location for all kinds of commercial filming and photographic shoots. 

Whether it is natural history documentaries, television adverts, music videos or training films, our filming team can help.
