Filming and photography on location

You are allowed to film and photograph for personal use in our exhibition venue at Konstakademien (the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts) and at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern as long as you do not use flash or a tripod. Some exhibitions or items in exhibitions may be excepted. All other filming and photography requires a written photo permit.

It is not possible to film or photograph in the museum building at Blasieholmen during the renovation. The possibility to film and photograph items from the collections is limited during this period. The museum is scheduled to open again in 2017.

To apply for a photo permit for filming or photography in our exhibition venues at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts and at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, or other locations connected to Nationalmuseum, send a brief description of the project to This is an email address

We can unfortunately not accept applications for photo permits at the exhibition venue.
