Interested in using an image of a Crime Museum photograph or object in your book or documentary? You’ve come to the right place! We have an extensive collection of John Dillinger images and ephemera, as well as items related to everything from infamous serial killers, to FBI Wanted Posters.

Please study the fee schedule below before contacting the museum. Requests can be made to artifacts@crimemuseum.org.

If this is a media request, please visit our Press page or email media@crimemuseum.org.

We have a small staff, so much of our collection has not been digitized. We appreciate your understanding.

Please note:

  • All fees are per image
  • Fees are subject to change at any time
  • All rates are the same for both Nonprofit and Commercial requests
  • Images are provided electronically, we do not provide printed reproductions
  • If you choose to use your own photographer, copies of session photography must be provided to the museum for potential future use.
  • All sales are final and objects will not be processed until payment is received by credit card
  • A credit card number must be provided in advance for all filming and charges will be made based on time
  • Expect at least a two week turnaround time based on your request
