Request Form

Filming at the Anchorage Museum is a courtesy that may be extended to projects that contribute to the museum’s mission. These may include educational documentaries, news crews and news productions, or projects that feature or promote the Anchorage Museum and are reviewed and approved by the Marketing and Public Relations or Facility Rental Department.

Due to limited resources, commercial filming requests are not a museum priority. Commercial projects include advertising for a third-party product, annual report for a third-party company, movie productions, television productions, etc.

B-roll of the museum is available to qualified members of the media.

Visit the museum Filming Guidelines & Requests Form for more information.
