Listen... I am as much of a bumbling-tourist as anyone when traveling but this takes things to a whole new level. Is it over zealousness or lack of respect? I don't know about you but when I go into a museum I'm afraid to even chew gum for fear it will fall out and cause damage to a piece. To actually touch a six-hundred year old sculpture (yet alone break it) take a special set. Maybe the museum can use them for glue.
