Why do museums ban photography?


Asked on: 14 Aug 2009

There are several reasons.

First of all it is annoying for other people there when the flash is going off constantly.

Also there may be copyright issues like they don't want people taking photos of their artwork as this can lose money when otherwise only official photographs of something are allowed.

Finally the reason often is that the flash light will disintegrate the colours or make something that is of sensitive dyes lose their colour.
