Parents are constantly warning their kids not to be horsing around or be too rambunctious, especially at public places like museums. But that warning came too late for a family in China who were checking out the Shanghai Museum of Glass. It seems “two little visitors” who were there with their parents got a little too rowdy and knocked into a glass display case that held a glass model of a Disney castle.
The kids had climbed over barriers to get close enough to knock the castle, causing part of it to fall and shatter. You can imagine how their parents must’ve cringed when they heard that glass shattering, but knowing how long it took artists to create it and how much it cost must’ve sent them over the edge. It seems this castle took 500 hours to make and is valued at $64-thousand!
But the museum took the incident in stride, saying the kids knew their behavior was inappropriate, and “under the encouragement of their parents,” they reported it to the museum staff. “Their attitudes were friendly and sincere, and they agreed to help out with follow-up matters,” according to the museum. The broken castle is still on display, to serve as a warning to museum-goers to be careful around the exhibits.
