Image order service
The Museum offers an image order service where rights allow.
For image orders of objects and documentary items, particularly for publishing purposes, please allow at least 3 months' lead time to enable us to schedule acclimation, removal from display, cleaning, photography and/or copyright and other clearances.
Where a suitable digital image already exists, we aim to fulfill orders within 3 weeks (owing to the complexity of copyright and other clearances).
As a condition of use, Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira must be accurately attributed. Copies of a published work (including digital-only formats) may be requested.
To purchase copies of images, please download an order form and contact us.
