With the IS in m43 bodies/lenses and their compact size, I find that they are ideally suited to the no flash/no tripod rules in many museums. I don't think that there is a thread dedicated to images taken at museums. I thought that it would be good idea to start one to collect them in one place rather than having them scattered across different threads.

I will start off with some images taken at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco this past weekend. I hope that others will add more and keep the thread going. All images with the E-M10 + O17/1.8 (except #1 which is taken with the O14-150II). Auto ISO with max ISO at 640 and shutter speeds between 1/8 and 1/100s). With more care, I could probably have shot the whole set at ISO 320.

10. The museum moved to its current location in the old SF Main Public Library building around 2003. It has always amused me that the grand staircase is named after a sponsor.

I fully agree with TS the M43 cameras especially the ones with IBIS and silent shutter are perfectly suited to shoot images in museums and galleries.

I shot this series of images of Dutch artist Joseph Klibansky's exhibition "Leap of Faith" in museum De Fundatie in Zwolle/Holland.

Now were talking my type of thread! I love museums.
Here is one I got recently at the National Gallery in Washington D.C. It was on a Olympus Air with a Pany 14mm f/2.5, I mostly keep the camera on Auto ISO and Shutter, they were at 2500 and 1/60.
