Wandering Down the "Don't Touch" Line
MARCH 21, 2012
I grew up professionally in the science and children's museum field, where touching is guaranteed and floor staff spend more time helping visitors learn and ensuring their personal safety than they do protecting the objects. In the history gallery, we have some blended props and artifacts, and it's rarely clear what is and is not ok to touch. The Milwaukee Art Museum has a video explaining do's and don'ts of the museum for children.
