  • Briefing your students before the trip

  • Refrain from touching the artworks. Dirt, oil and moisture from our hands can hasten the process of deterioration for art pieces. The pieces may also be accidentally damaged by objects like rings or finger nails.

    No running, pushing and playing in the galleries as these actions put the exhibits at risk

    Avoid using the wall panels, showcases or exhibits as backing for writing notes. If students require a hard surface for writing, please ask the guide for clip-boards.

    Speak softly in the galleries to allow other visitors to enjoy the exhibitions.

    No food and drinks in the galleries.
