World's largest museum chain bans "selfie-sticks"

Posted: Updated:

The Smithsonian Institute is putting a ban on "selfie-sticks" inside their museums and gardens. The museum chain changed it's policy on Tuesday, saying that selfie-sticks are now included in their ban of tripods and monopods inside the museum.

They say it's to prevent people from hitting visitors and things inside the museum, especially in crowded conditions.

The Smithsonian is not banning selfies though; in fact, the museum encourages visitors to take selfies and share their experiences, just as long as they don't use a selfie stick.
