Press Policies

Thank you for your interest in covering the Legacy Sites. With advance notice, we can help you make the most of your time at the sites. We’re also happy to provide members of the media with a press kit upon request.

Guidelines for Audio and Video Recording and Photography

To preserve the sacredness of the sites and the integrity of each visitor’s experience, we do not allow video or audio recording, tripods, or lighting equipment at the Legacy Sites.

Photographs of any kind are not permitted inside the Legacy Museum and we ask that all visitors turn off their cell phones while inside the museum. 

Visitors to the memorial and monument are welcome to respectfully document their experience with still photography using a cell phone or hand-held digital camera, but we require professional photographers and press to contact us for permission in advance of scheduling any photo shoots on location.

Please email press@eji.org with any questions or requests as far in advance of your visit as possible.
