Press and Photography

Press and Photography policies

Photography is allowed in the museum and permanent collection galleries. Flash photography and tripods are prohibited without special permission obtained in writing in advance from the EPMA’s Office of the Registrar.

All organized photo shoots inside the museum – for news coverage, school projects, tourism, and other commercial purposes – require a museum escort. Please contact the Office of the Registrar at villam1@elpastexas.gov at least one week in advance to schedule your photo shoot. Unscheduled photo shoots that cannot be staffed will be declined.

Images of objects in the collection are available for commercial and publishing uses through the Office of the Registrar at villam1@elpasotexas.gov.

Media who wish to visit the museum should contact the MCAD Public Affairs Coordinator, Erin Ritter at ritteree@elpasotexas.gov in advance.
