Why does the museum ask visitors not to touch artworks in the museum’s collections?
Works of arts are very delicate and fragile and might be permanently damaged by the slightest touch. The oil on our hands or the traces of moisture on our fingertips can damage even what appears to be a solid work of art. One of the roles of a museum is to preserve the artworks of the past and present for the future generations and we need to help to ensure that these works of art in our care are sustained for years to come.
