Museum Gets the Message Across with Heartfelt Signage

William Lewis Moody Jr. bought a fine mansion in Galveston, Texas, just after the devastating 1900 hurricane. Moody and his family members lived there until Hurricane Alicia in 1983. The mansion has been restored and is now a museum. I’m sure our erstwhile Neatorama author WTM could tell us a lot more about it. The curators of the museum’s treasures are a creative bunch.

Kerry Clark visited the Moody Mansion and was impressed by the “do not touch” signs. These are worth reading, and certainly get the idea across that it’s not your home and it’s not cool to mess with the furnishings. Many of them are accompanied by images of the previous residents of the house to drive the point home. Clark took pictures of about twenty of these signs and shared them with the Facebook group Useless, Unsuccessful, and/or Unpopular Signage. The problem is that these signs are useful, successful, and entertaining. -via Boing Boing
