Protocols for Museum Visit
WALK, DON'T RUN
Running can harm you and other visitors. Running can also cause damage to Museum artefacts. Take your time, there is a lot to see.
DO NOT TOUCH WORKS OF ART
Your touch may not seem like much, but even the slightest contact can damage the surface of a painting, discolour stone and even rust metal.
KEEP SAFE DISTANCE
This helps to avoid accidental touching or bumping.
USE ONLY PENCILS
If you would like to write or draw on your sketch pad during your museum visit, use only pencil. Be careful not to point with your pencil or other objects; this can endanger the works of art. No pen, marker, cutter, knife is allowed inside the Museum.
NO LEANING ON WALLS OR CASES
This helps keep works of art hung on the walls or displayed in cases safe.Feel free to sit on the benches or the floor as you talk, write, or draw. You are also welcome to sit on the chairs available in the adjacent cafeteria for any discussion.
NO FOOD, DRINK, SMOKING OR GUM IS ALLOWED
The art in the museum will provide plenty of food for thought as well as a feast for the eyes! Appropriate museum behaviour is necessary to avoid accidentally bumping into and damaging works of art.
PHOTOS & FILMING
You are allowed to take photographs of the artworks for private and non commercial use only but without using flash as the light can damage the art. For photography of Museum objects and galleries for commercial use, please inquire in writing to email@example.com.
Personal videography is allowed in the museum. The museum often photographs and films onsite programs for use on promotional materials. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed, please inform a staff member.
MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS ON SILENT MODE
You would think this one would be obvious, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to turn their phones off before entering the exhibition area. Not only is it rude to have your phone ringing in the middle of the exhibition, but it's also distracting to other visitors. If you must take a call, step outside first.
