Okay! Now we are ready for our visit to The Neuberger Museum… let’s go over some basic Museum Etiquette: (Etiquette = Manners)• You can talk, but be courteous to those around you. If our docent is speaking, please listen and don’t interrupt her. She is trained to know all about the art you are seeing.• Do not touch! Not only do you risk damaging an artifact by knocking it over and breaking it, the invisible oils on your hands can also cause damage. Keep a respectful distance between yourself and the rope, the artwork on the wall, or the sculpture on the pedestal.• A museum is not a playground. You should not run and shout through the galleries, or walk underneath ropes. Most museums do not allow children to come in without an adult, so stick with your teachers!• Make Roxbury PROUD by showing Good Character and making the right choices at all times (even when no one is looking!)
