Hotel De Paris Museum Photography Policy

 

On-Line Sources Offer Official Images to Visitors


With all of the potential exposure photographers could offer us on their websites, blogs, and

social media sites, the staff and advisors of Hotel de Paris Museum made the difficult decision

to not allow photography, filming, or recording by non-commercial visitors.

Loss of a revenue stream (the sale of officially sanctioned images) was not a factor for us.

The policy protects the museumís intellectual property, light-sensitive artifacts, tour aesthetics,

and security. In addition, it helps prevent the stalking of visitors, volunteers, and staff.

However, we have made a compromise to our policy and accommodated requests for

 images by creating an on-line Press Room.  Images of our period rooms,

artwork, and other furnishings are on view and easy to find at
