About Us 

Te Papa Media Sales and Licensing is home to some of New Zealand’s most unique images, stock footage and audio clips. Our world class image library contains over 800,000 images of collection items, artworks, and photography by some of New Zealand’s most iconic photographers.

Our collection of media assets is available to license for use in documentaries, feature films, television productions, advertisements, publications, corporate materials, exhibitions, or online use.

Te Papa Media also handles commercial requests to film at the Museum.

if you would like to film within the Museum.

Te Papa Media Sales and Licensing is a part-commercial division of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Our images and footage are sourced directly from the collection, or have been produced in conjunction with research projects at the Museum. The proceeds of our media sales help to recover the costs of making our media assets accessible to the public and also help to fund the museum’s exhibitions, scholarships and programmes in research, conservation and education.
