Each request for filming and photography is considered on its own merits and if the request is accepted as a strong promotional opportunity for the museum. To discuss a photographic or film shoot for media/news purposes, please contact the  Museum on +61 (0)3 5441 5044 or via email.

Commercial Photography and Filming
Our buildings and unique permanent exhibitions make it an ideal location for commercial filming and photography.

While the Museum regularly provides supervised access to a vast array of public spaces and ‘behind the scenes’ locations, our valuable scientific specimens and cultural artefacts are rarely loaned out for commercial filming or photography purposes.

To discuss filming or photography for general commercial purposes, please contact us on +61 (0)3 5441 5044 or via email.
