This attack really was horrible and I feel for the families. I don't know how we can totally avoid that very small risk of an attack at a public place .Some changes can be made, but I hope fear doesn't change museums into what we've made airports.

At major museums, I can see them being able to handle some changes. What concerns me is some of the smaller museums that don't have the budgets for security, x-ray machines and storage lockers. Will they make rules for no bags at all?

I know at several small museums, travelers can take their bag with them or store them at the ticket entrance while they walk through. I hope that remains.
