Whether you’re making a film, documentary, advert or news programme, we welcome requests to film at our museums and galleries. Our expert team are on hand to help and guide you through every stage of the process, whether that's arranging a site visit or managing your filming day. From historic court rooms - ideal for period dramas - to a ship permanently docked at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, our venues provide a wide range of opportunities.

Commercial filming in our museums and galleries requires a high level of organisation and management so will therefore incur a charge. If your filming is of our collections and exhibitions, relating to a topical news story, or interviewing our staff to showcase the museum, then this may be accommodated free of charge.
