Photographs of Peabody Collections

Objects or Archives 

The Peabody Museum will provide photographs of objects or copies of photographs in its collection for publication. For policies and procedures, see below.

In rare circumstances, the Museum will allow a researcher to publish his or her own photograph of a Peabody Museum object. The procedure for seeking permission involves a review of the photograph quality and the transfer of copyright for that photo to the Peabody Museum. For information on seeking permission to publish your own photographs, click here.
