Request a reproduction of an image of a work/object

Things to know before submitting a request

The website of the Musée National de l’Histoire de l’Immigration presents images of works or objects from its collections but also from other sources. Please pay attention to the copyright information under the image in order to contact the copyright holders.

The museum has the images in a digital version, which can be sent to you free of charge. However, many works that have been integrated into the Museum’s collections are subject to copyright.

Before any visual of a work under copyright can be sent, prior authorisation must be secured, and a copyright fee may need to be paid to the artist or his/her successors. We will notify you of the procedures required should you encounter this situation.
