While the Museum is limiting visitor numbers to ensure social distancing, all members of the media are asked to book tickets for general admission and our exhibitions.  Unfortunately we are not able to offer complimentary access to the media to our ticketed exhibitions at this time.  If you have been commissioned to review the exhibition by an accredited media outlet, please get in touch with us (above) and we will do our best to help.


Press images for temporary exhibitions and news announcements are available to download from Dropbox.  Links are indicated in the accompanying press releases (above).  

For any other requirements please contact the Press Office (above) and we will be happy to help.

Press images are for editorial use only and must be published with the accompanying credit and copyright information.

To license images for commercial, academic or personal use, please contact our Picture Library 


The Press Office can facilitate filming and photography for members of the media covering the Ashmolean’s exhibitions and news announcements. News-filming and photography must be arranged in advance.  Contact us (above) and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
