The sheer amount of handprints, finger prints, forehead prints and just oily bodily contact on the museum display cabinets... Have some people actually set the coming-out-of-lockdown goal of "Touch every feckin public surface I can find"?
I may well edit this better in the future, but this was far too amusing to not share with you while English museums have only just reopened, and masks etc are still being worn.
What happens when the staff have had free run of their venue for some time, and are in a good mood after binge watching Disney+?
If a historic or heritage venue, heck, any venue, says they have smoking policies, please do obey them. Odds are it isn't purely draconian, but is, for example, to protect vulnerable items, or prevent sensitive alarm equipment going off and you all having to go and stand outside while the food goes cold and the fizzy goes flat. Also, it doesn't matter who you are, what you paid for, or who you know, if you've been told, you’ve been told. Security don't muck about.
The awkward moment when your museum finds that a local facebook page has been cheerfully copy/pasting your facebook events to create Their Own event pages, because they think it'll help your events reach more people.
What is mainly seems to do is reach people, confuse them, and make them frustrated over unanswered questions in the event discussion section.
Why didn't we answer your question on the event page? We weren't notified about a question on the event page. There isn't a question on the event page. Oh, that's a link to an event page which isn't ours. But looks exactly like our event page...
Road to hell, best intentions, paving, and all that.
