Media Tips

Our marketing and communications staff are eager to assist you! We welcome the opportunity to assist credentialed electronic and print journalists with editorial coverage and stories of the Museum of Life and Science.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • We promise to help make your story a great one; however, the staff of the Museum of Life and Science may set guidelines and limitations to ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and animals.
  • All interviews with Museum employees will be arranged through the marketing office.
  • Special permission is required to enter off-exhibit areas. Contact our marketing team and we will do our best to get you where you need.
  • As much as we’d like to go above and beyond where a great story is concerned, animal quarantine and exhibit development areas are off-limits to media personnel.
  • Reporters and photographers are allowed in visitor-approved areas and public pathways, but if you’re accompanied by someone in our communications office, then we may let you explore just a bit more.
  • Need a vehicle on Museum grounds to make your story complete? No worries! Our marketing team is happy to help.
