Guidelines for Good Art Museum Visitors

  • Works of art are fragile. Museums ask visitors not to touch anything. The oils, salts, and acids on our skin can damage works of art.
  • Keep a safe distance from art objects, walls, platforms, and cases. Don’t wear a backpack.
  • Please don’t run. Lots of people of all ages visit museums.
  • Be respectful of other museum visitors by using quiet voices.
  • Keep cell phones turned off.
  • Museums are big places so stay with your group.
  • Because pens and clipboards can damage works of art, please don’t bring them. The museum will supply everything you need.
  • Photography regulations vary at each art museum and institution. Check them carefully before bringing a camera.
