Selfie-stick ban 博物馆禁止在室内使用自拍棒 – BBC UK China

Selfie-sticks are all the rage among tourists in Paris, especially Asian tourists. The expanding poles allow you to hold your mobile device at a distance of several feet, in order to get a wider picture of yourself, your friends and whatever’s behind you.

But increasingly museums and galleries are worried not just about the disruption from group-selfies, but also the risk posed to pictures, tapestries and sculptures from people brandishing long sticks in crowded rooms.

Signs are now going up in Versailles saying they are banned from use: the Louvre and the Pompidou Centre are likely to follow suit.
