Visitors to the Ashmolean are welcome to use still cameras in the Museum. To protect delicate objects, we ask visitors to refrain from using flash photography, and to be aware that photographs are for private noncommercial use. In front of certain displays the “no photography” sign will indicate where permission to take photographs is restricted. The use of video cameras, monopods and tripods is not permitted. Please ask any member of staff or at the Information Desk if you have any questions about photography, or call the Museum on 01865 278 000.

Professional quality inkjet prints and digital images of objects in the Ashmolean’s collection are also available through the Picture Library and via our print on demand site. Visit and
