Private photography and filming
Private photography and filming that is not published is generally permitted in our museum without any additional equipment (tripod, flash, etc.) and does not require any further authorisation. If the recordings are to be published at a later date for commercial use, please contact We are happy about recordings that are shared with us on social media! (please tag: @asm.muc)

Editorial and commercial photography and filming
In general, photography and filming is of course possible in the Archaeological State Collection. In order not to disturb visitors and to protect the exhibits, the technical effort required for filming must be kept to a minimum. In addition, all film and photo work must be registered and approved in advance. As the work will be supervised by the press department and security staff, we ask that you give us sufficient advance notice in the event of editorial enquiries that are not on a daily basis. As photography and filming entail a high additional personnel and financial outlay for us, we have to charge fees for commercial recordings. For enquiries, please contact the press office with a brief description of the project and details of the client.

The stock of archaeological finds from all over Bavaria is documented in over 20,000 high-resolution images for reproduction purposes.

Digital colour photographs
High-resolution images and reproduction rights for commercial and scientific purposes can be obtained from the following address: If possible, please include the desired photo number with your order.
