Why do photographers have to pay a fee to use the Museum site?
The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm requires photographers to pay a modest fee to help support the Museum's operation. This site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and our community has invested substantial funds to acquire and preserve this location. We keep our buildings and grounds in exceptional condition as a public park and these fees help to offset our costs and to cover improvements.

In order to provide exceptional customer service to guests and users, this fee is required to help regulate who is on the site and to coordinate photography use in regards to other events.
