World-famous museums are scattered in various countries of the world, great museums, so as to attract visitors from other countries. Traveled appeared to have the other side with exciting activities that can be done in the museum.

But. Traveled specifically to visit the museum does have its own way, citing the site CNN Indonesia, March 2, maintain order during take pictures to the museum, especially if it is no installation exhibition that usually form large-sized works.

Well, an uncomfortable incident occurred at an art exhibition organized by the museum, the artist Yayoi Kusama at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC, USA.

The exhibition attracted the attention of many parties, titled 'Infinity Mirrored Room: All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins,' and make anyone in attendance will be fascinated, she displayed a lot of gourd-shaped lamp yellow patterned circle.

It may be obvious, you know when the gourd lamp glass deployed indoors, so it looks a very large number due to the reflection of the mirror.

What happens then? Many visitors were unable to restrain themselves, they bowled, of course, and immediately wanted to immortalized it on the site Instagram.

Visitors are unable to discipline themselves, after a few days it opened, the exhibition was postponed, because a lot of pumpkin lights were damaged due to accidentally stepped on or run over by visitors who come to take pictures, especially when they doing 'selfie'.

Allison Peck, a spokesman for the museum said in an interview with The Washington Post, on Thursday, March 2, to explain how this could happen.

"We do not expect this to happen, because when entered the room, the door would have closed."

The exhibition was closed temporarily, but then lots of requests from various elements of communities to take lovers of the works of contemporary art, the exhibition has been re-opened to the public.

I think the addition of supervisory officers in the room is necessary, so that no more visitors who spoil the work just to take pictures, or while relaxing with other visitors in the room.

"We do not want any defective work. So we ask that visitors respect the rule set."
