The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has banned the use of selfie sticks at its museum.
The main reason for the ban is the safety of museum visitors and exhibits. The sticks, when extended, can hit and damage an exhibit or a passing visitor.
The sticks can also block another visitors view of exhibits.
Photographs are still allowed at the museum, as long as they’re taking with a handheld camera without a flash. Tripods are also prohibited.
