Museum Manners

Remember to discuss art museum etiquette with your kids ahead of your visit. Here are some pointers, courtesy of the Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA.

Exploring glass art at WheatonArtsLook, don’t touch. We cannot touch the artwork because over time, the oils on our hands would destroy the art.
Don’t lean against or climb on walls, pedestals, sculptures or buildings.
No running or shouting in the galleries. Polite behavior is always necessary. Other visitors are in the galleries.
No gum or food in the galleries.
No flash cameras. The light from a camera flash is bright, and over time, would be harmful to a piece of artwork.
