May I take photographs?

In order to preserve the ambience of Mr. Frick's private house and to protect the works of art and their domestic setting, visitors are required to comply with the following rules regarding photography:

Still photography without flash for personal use by means of phones, hand-held cameras and tablet devices, is permitted only in the Garden Court, and may not include objects there which are explicitly prohibited by notice. Camera extension poles, videography and use of a tripod are not permitted at any time. When taking photographs, please be courteous to other museum visitors by not blocking their view or impeding their movement.

Use of such photography for commercial purposes is not allowed. For questions regarding Rights and Reproduction, please contact the office of Retail and Visitor Services ( 

The Museum reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to withhold and/or withdraw permission to photograph on its premises or to reproduce photographs of objects in its collection.
