Walking and talking are two very great pleasures, but it is a mistake to combine them. Our own noise blots out the sounds and silences of the outdoor world; … The only friend to walk with is one who so exactly shares your taste for each mood of the countryside that a glance, a halt, or at most a nudge, is enough to assure us that the pleasure is shared.

I feel this way in museums, either share it with someone of like mind or suggest meeting back at the entry later. You could say looking and talking are a mistake in the museum. I don’t mind talking in there but not about non related comments. Am I an art snob? : )
