Commercial use and museums?

Hello,

I wanted to create a Travel vlog showcasing loads of places around the world. However, when I check a lot of museums policy on photography/filming, they state that they only allow filming for personal use. Does this mean I will not be able to post that particular museum on YouTube?

It seems confusing as there's plenty of videos with ads on them on YouTube already from these museums yet they enforce a personal use policy that prohibits commercial use.

Can someone explain the chance of getting your video struck off or getting a copyright strike and why so many videos on YouTube have monetised videos of museums on there already?

Have you ever thought that the ads you are seeing were placed by Content ID on behalf of the museums themselves? If they say something is personal use only, and someone monetizes it in spite of being told no commercial use, they have every right to cancel out that monetization with a CID claim and monetize the content on behalf of the museum itself.

;)These institutions cost a lot of money to run, after all!
