Fox River Trolley Museum Photography Policy

The Fox River Trolley Association (dba Fox River Trolley Museum) reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to withhold and/or withdraw permission to photograph on its premises or to reproduce photographs of objects in its Collections. Policies have been outlined below to provide further information on how to gain necessary approvals for various photography needs. 

Visitor Photography

Photography is permitted for private, noncommercial use only.

Photographs cannot be published, sold, reproduced, transferred, distributed, or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever. Photography is not permitted in certain special exhibitions or any areas designated "No Photography." 

Press Photography Subject to prior approval, members of the press may photograph or film within designated areas of the Museum for the purpose of news coverage that includes Fox River Trolley Museum as the subject. All members of the press must contact the Fox River Trolley Museum prior to arrival. Unless otherwise arranged, a member of the Staff must be present to escort members of the press through exhibitions and all other areas of the facility. 

Educational Photography Subject to prior approval, students may photograph or film within designated areas of the Museum for educational purposes that includes Fox River Trolley Museum as the subject. All students must contact the Fox River Trolley Museum prior to arrival. Unless otherwise arranged, a member of the Staff must be present to escort members of the press through exhibitions and all other areas of the facility

Commercial and Special Photography The Fox River Trolley Museum charges site fees for all filming and photography intended for commercial purposes. Site fees are also charged for using the Museum as a setting for other projects that are not considered personal snapshots or editorial coverage by the press. Site fees vary based on the details of each project. 

Because the Fox River Trolley Museum is open to the public, no special arrangements can be made to quarantine an area from normal visitor traffic. All filming and photography must be conducted without disruption to Museum operations. For filming and photography scheduled to occur outside of normal business hours, the function will be treated as a special event. Fees begin at regular special events rates and may increase to accommodate special requests and circumstances.

The Museum reserves the right to approve final content for anything in which the Museum or its properties will appear, either by name or by visual representation. For books, videos, films or other projects, the Fox River Trolley Museum must receive full details of any dialogue, written content or other accompanying information for review prior to approval. The Fox River Trolley Museum reserves the right to decline any request for any reason, including any project that Museum personnel believe could reflect negatively upon the Museum.

Disclaimer Concerning All Photography With respect to any photographs taken at the Museum, the Museum makes no representations or warranties concerning the subject matter of such photographs. To the extent such photography incorporates the likenesses of individuals or depicts copyrighted materials, the photographer shall have sole responsibility for obtaining any necessary releases or consents to use such likenesses or materials.
