Art Safety Tips

How do we make sure future generations can enjoy the art? With your help.

Touches, bumps, spills, and bright lights can damage or even destroy art, so there are limits on what happens in the Museum.

The basics of protecting art:

Art Safety: Keep hands to yourself, and off art

Keep hands to yourself, and off the art

Your fingers (toes, elbows) cause immediate damage, leaving oils and dirt behind. Safe, hands-on activities are available for all ages.

Art Safety: Food and drink stay out of the galleries

Food and drink stay out of the galleries

Anything that could spill, leak, crumble, stick, or stain needs to remain in easy-to-clean areas. You are welcome to eat in the East End or Windhover Hall.

Art Safety: Store backpacks, big bags, and umbrellas

Store backpacks, big bags, and umbrellas

Anything carried on your back or larger than 13 × 17 in. can accidentally bump or break art as you explore. Lockers are available on the East End and in the Quadracci Pavilion.

Art Safety: Personal, flash-free photos are usually encouraged

Personal, flash-free photos are usually encouraged

We welcome photography, without flash or bright light, for personal use. Photo shoots and commercial use require advance approval. (Some exhibitions may have additional limitations.)

Art Safety: Tripods, selfie sticks, and drones are not allowed

Tripods, selfie sticks, and drones are not allowed

Safe visitors and safe art are more important than great photos. Selfie sticks and autonomous or radio-controlled devices are not permitted anywhere in the Museum. Tripods require special arrangements.

See our complete policy for more information.
