Museum Policies

We want the MoAD museum experience to be safe and comfortable for everyone — and we need your help to make it happen.

Please respond to all requests from museum staff and comply with the following rules:

Safety and security

  • Silence your mobile phones and electronic devices.
  • Do not touch the art.
  • Do not smoke anywhere in the building.
  • Food or beverages are not permitted in the second or third floor galleries.

During your visit, a member of the MoAD security team may remind you of these rules. Your cooperation will help make the museum a safe, welcoming space, and preserve the art for others to enjoy.


  • Non-flash photography is permitted except where expressly noted by signage.
  • The use of tripods, flashes, and video cameras is strictly prohibited.
  • Photos may be taken for personal, non-commercial use only, except where special written permission is granted.


Drawing or sketching with pencils only is permitted in the museum.
