Protection of the Artworks

To ensure the safety of the collection, the Gallery does not permit visitors to carry bags on their backs in the exhibition galleries.

• Coats and small umbrellas may be carried into the galleries. Large umbrellas are not permitted.

• An adult should accompany children at all times in the Gallery. 

• Still photography is permitted for private, non-commercial use only in the galleries devoted to the permanent collection. Photographs cannot be published, sold, reproduced, transferred, distributed, or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever.

• Photography is not permitted in special exhibitions or areas designated as "No Photography". Please take note of public signage in the gallery.

• The use of flash photography is prohibited at all times and in all galleries.
