Smithsonian Institution Museums Ban Selfie-sticks

Smithsonian Institution Museums Ban Selfie-sticks Since the Smithsonian Institution was founded in August 1846, the collection of museums must have seen all manner of pointy objects, from ceremonial swords worn by gallant officers to the latest in parasol fashions for Southern Belles.

This is definitely one of those places where you can't use your selfie stick. Where exactly? 1000 Jefferson Dr SW, Washington, DC 20004, United States. Opening hours 8.30 am to 5.30 pm.

No to Selfie Sticks at the Palace of Versailles, Paris, France

No to Selfie Sticks at the Palace of Versailles, Paris, France The opulent surroundings of the Palace of Versailles near Paris are apparently far too grand for your selfie stick, which is a slightly hypocritical stance to take by management, bearing in mind the palace was the former home of one of the most self-obsessed narcissists the world has ever known. However, this royal château in the Île-de-France region is another one of those places where selfie sticks are not permitted. Where? Château de Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000 Versailles, France. Opening hours vary.

Hot Selfie Stick Debate at Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada

Hot Selfie Stick Debate at Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto's Downtown Grange Park district is still debating whether or not you are allowed to use your wand of vanity, when you're mingling with the 80,000+ art works in their collection.

National Gallery of London, UK

National Gallery of London, UK Excuse me, Miss, is that your nose or should our Head of Security take a look at it? Pretty much everything these days is regarded as a sharp and pointy object, when you enter the hallowed grounds of a London museum. Which is a bit silly, given that this April the National Gallery in Central London runs an exhibition titled "The Secret Weapon of Kings: Rubens, Van Dyck and Velasquez". None of these artists would have been allowed to enter with paint brushes, let alone selfie sticks! Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN, UK, opening hours 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.

South Korea has gone so far as to introduce fines for selling unregistered selfie sticks, so if you’re heading to Seoul, do not buy one from a street seller.
