Location filming

With a collection spanning centuries and a beautiful neoclassical building in the heart of Cambridge, The Fitzwilliam Museum is a stunning location for commercial filming and photography. Please contact us via the enquiry form for more information.

When can I film or photograph at the Museum?

Commercial filming or photography in the galleries must take place outside of public opening hours (10.00-17.00, Tuesday to Saturday, and 12.00-1700 on Sunday). The Museum is closed to the public on Mondays. You can film in back-of-house locations during public opening hours and morning filming in the galleries is possible between 08.30 and 10.00, both subject to availability.

How much does it cost to film or photograph at the Museum?

Fees are based on crew size and the duration of the shoot. It is an hourly rate charged from the time of arrival until departure, per hour. Filming out of public opening hours and larger location shoots will incur additional fees and staff costs. Please enquire for further details.

How much notice does the Museum need for a new shoot enquiry?

We normally require 10 working days' notice to arrange location shoots. If you would like to film with a specific collection item or if you would like to film with a Museum expert please contact us with the details and we will confirm availability and costs.

Is there parking on site?

There is limited parking available on site which must be booked in advance.

I am a student, can I film or photograph in the Museum for my project?

Please contact us via our enquiry form with the details of your requirements and we will advise you accordingly.
