Wandering Down the "Don't Touch" Line

Museum 2.0

In the history gallery, we have some blended props and artifacts, and it's rarely clear what is and is not ok to touch. This is only going to become a bigger issue for us as we invite in new audiences and incorporate more participatory experiences throughout the museum. The Milwaukee Art Museum has a video explaining do's and don'ts of the museum for children. How do you help visitors know what they can and cannot do in your museum?
