* On photography in the museum
The main task of any museum is to preserve, to study cultural values, to present them to visitors and access to cultural values.
Providing visitors with photography in the museum is not the main task of the museum. Moreover, in relation to photography, the cultural establishment has responsibility for implementation of photography regulations by individuals (visitors) such as prohibition on flash, photography prohibition at temporary exhibitions and storages.
Bans on photography for the museum objects are determined by objective factors on the part of the National Art Museum: safe state of a specific museum item; existence of obligations for its partners when organizing temporary exhibitions; safety of the museum objects, etc.
Comfortable conditions for the museum visitors, the proper safety and security of the museum objects may be provided by a total ban on photography in the museum.
However, the National Art Museum makes concessions for contemporary needs of society, and permits photography for individuals (visitors) in it. This privilege is provided at a charge.
In accordance with the legislation in force, Order No 371 (‘On prices for services rendered by the institution ‘National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus’) was issued in the National Art Museum on February 12, 2015. It provides photo and video filming in the manner prescribed by the laws of the Republic of Belarus.
