Peter Campbell rants about museum audio tours:
It’s illegal to drive while you’re on your mobile phone, so why do galleries ask you to listen on headsets while you look at pictures? There is plenty of evidence intuitive, anecdotal (scientific too, for all I know) to show that concentrated listening and concentrated looking interfere with one another. Is it the money the headsets bring in?
