Why aren’t we allowed to touch the art?

Visitors are not allowed to touch the works of art. Even the lightest touch causes enormous damage because the salt and grease even on clean hands makes marks on all materials. The purpose of the Museum is to preserve the artworks for future generations of visitors.
