The Museum Guard

Of course I visit a museum in the first place for the Art, but you also know that I always observe the interaction or the lack of interaction between visitors and art.
The Guards museum is an special interesting group.
I have noticed that there are major differences about the policy of museums regarding the deploy and task of Museum Guards.
There are museums that employ students from art academies. Interested students who would like to inform the visitors about the art exhibited. But often the museum guard is not the host or hostess that you would wish them to be . They strictly monitor whether we stick to the rules and are happy if they can reprove a visitor.
Of course I think it is pre if the museum guard is interested in the art he/she is guarding.

Today three examples of the museum guards and their way of working.
