If, following your risk assessment, you think that touching would be particularly harmful to an exhibit (repeated touching of certain valuable objects can damage them. Peoples hands have acid in them which can attack marbles or paint pigments or textiles), then carefully consider the open display of such objects: e.g. make sure they have a sign written with Do not touch, are roped off and possibly protected by anti-touch technology.

Security is an important element of good conservation.
