Filming Requests

The Museum receives frequent requests from individuals or production companies interested in commercial filming or conducting photos shoots in and around the Museum. In all cases of filming and photo shoots, our goal is to make sure our visitor’s experience is not impacted and that no damage occurs to either the buildings or grounds.

If you are planning a photo shoot outside on the grounds of the Museum and have a simple set up (hand-carried equipment, limited number of individuals), you can utilize the property any time our grounds are open. Donations for this type of photo shoot are appreciated and can be made here.

For commerical/large productions, the Museum must evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis to determine feasibility and if fees will be charged. Contact Mike Vietti at 816.888.8122 or

Professional photo shoots and filming that takes place indoors within the Museum must be coordinated through Mike Vietti at 816.888.8122 or The Museum photo policy can be viewed here.
