Visitor comfort in museums: Eye and spirit relief

Eye relief — and spirit relief — are essential to staying refreshed and comfortable during a museum visit. It’s a blessing to be able to change visual and psychological focus — to look at something other than the art and the gallery walls.

The Met, of course, has many such superb spaces where you can just sit and relax in harmonious surroundings. 

 

 

 

While it’s true that museums can’t be as homey and relaxing as a visitor’s own living room, there’s no reason they can’t strive to be comfortable, welcoming, and easy to use.
