Visual Resources Permissions

The majority of the Visual Resources Collection is available for licensing for one-time use in editorial and educational projects. Use of photographs of museum objects is subject to curatorial review and approval. Occasionally, new photography is temporarily restricted for first time use in Colonial Williamsburg publications, exhibitions, web features, and broadcasts. In addition, any photography of visitors or personnel that has not been model released is restricted to in-house use.
