Photo Policy

The Museum has a collection of over 80,000 images. To help care for them we charge fees for copies of our images. There is a dual fee structure. Reproduction Fees for the physical image and Publication and Use Fees for the ability to publicly use the image.

Credit must be given each time an image is published, broadcast, or otherwise displayed. Credit should be given as follows “Photo Courtesy of Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum”. If credit is given separate from the image, as in a telecast or book appendix, image must be identified by page number, negative number, or image title as appropriate. No image obtained from the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum shall be altered in any way except for proportional cropping for publication without permission in advance from the Board of Trustees of the museum.

One copy of all publications, including periodicals, films, and videotapes, shall be given to Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum at no cost for inclusion in the collection.
