No photos allowed @ the Leopold Museum without a pemit?

From the website https:/…coverage it looks like one has to apply and pay for permission to take photos in the museum.

Is this true for personal use? If so, are there similar restrictions at the Albertina, the Belevedere collections, the Kunsthistorishes Museum & the MAK?

Many thanks,

John I took loads of photos at the Leopold last summer with no problem! I think that form is only for if you want to publish your photos.

Hello!

In some Viennese museums you are allowed (with no flash), in some not. In Leopold Museums is in principle allowed, without flash. For special exhibitions it could be forbidden.

In Belvedere is not allowed, MAK is allowed (you can use pictures only for personal purposes).

The best way to know if you need a permit is to get in contact with the museums.

Best regards, Romana

Thanks so much, Romana. Sad news re the Belvedere. I'll check with the museums before hauling out my camera.
