Photography in Verges Park

Owned by the Elkhorn Valley Museum, Verges Park is a beautiful place full of nature and rich in history. We welcome you to use our park for your professional photography. The cost per photography session in the park is $25.00. This fee helps the museum maintain the park grounds for our community. Please contact us ahead of time so that we may schedule your time in the park around our tours, weddings, educational programs, and other museum activities that occur in the park.

  • Schedule each session in advance so that it does not conflict with museum programming or other scheduled activities in the park.
  • Please park in the designated parking spaces in the parking lot; do not park in the Museum Fire Lane/loading area. For larger vehicles (limousine or trolley), please park in the Auxiliary Parking lot to the south and across from the main parking lot.

Photography Business Memberships

With your $250 Photography Business Membership, you receive 30 photography sessions in Verges Park per year and our quarterly newsletter. Sessions will still need to be pre-scheduled with the Museum. For more information on photography sessions, please contact JoBeth at
