Press accreditation

Newspaper, magazine, radio and television journalists and (press) photographers are welcome at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Requests for press visits must be submitted in advance to the Marketing and Communications department. Visits to the museum and use of images/footage/sound recordings are subject to the following conditions:

Conditions for press visits

  • Members of the press are welcome during opening hours. Photography without flash and without a tripod is generally permitted, but there may be exceptions in certain exhibitions.
  • Please give the Marketing and Communications department advance notice of your visit so that we can ensure that up-to-date press material will be available for you.
  • Filming and photography are permitted only upon request, see below. 
  • All journalists must present a valid press card and a current ID.
  • General visitor conditions apply.
  • The Marketing and Communications department reserves the right not to honour a request for a press visit.

Photography and filming requests

For photography with flash or a tripod and for filming please contact the Marketing and Communications department.

Filming is possible only on workdays. In connection with the fragility of the artworks and the privacy of our visitors, we have drawn up a filming protocol, which sets out the conditions for filming and making sound recordings in the museum. We will send you the protocol in advance and request that you read it carefully and return a signed copy prior to your visit. You must adhere to the conditions laid out in the protocol during your visit.

Please send an email to the Marketing and Communications department containing your full contact information, proposed date of your visit, the nature and intended use of the footage/images/sound recording, and information about the equipment you will bring. You will receive a reply as quickly as possible.


For press images please contact the Marketing and Communications department. For commercial use of images please contact the Documentation Centre.

You can find practical information about the museum, the collection and the history of the museum and an extensive selection of hi-res images of artworks from the collection and installation shots of the galleries here.
