The New York State Museum's holdings include over 12 million artifacts, specimens, photographs, and related materials. To see details of how to order images, use the links at left.

The New York State Museum assumes that an order for a photographic or digital image of any item in the collection is for personal use only. If the image is to be publicly distributed in any form or medium – print, photocopy, digital, film, etc. – special permission fees will apply and the New York State Museum must be formally and prominently credited. For information about permissions see the “Permission To Publish” link at the left.

Please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery, or 6 weeks if new studio photography is required. Requests are generally filled in order of receipt. Turnaround time depends on workload and the size of the order. Every effort will be made to honor deadlines.

All work is billed to the customer when the completed order is shipped. Payment is due upon receipt. All sales are final. Fees and charges are subject to change without notice.
