I was talking to a friend the other day and he mentioned his wish to see the Pyramids of Egypt (I am Egyptian) and as we were talking I mentioned that people can get into the Pyramids and see all the beautiful paintings and tombs of the kings.
He was surprised because he thought people could only take a look from outside. That friend of mine is very cultured and knowledgeable so I started to wonder if it is a common misconception.
So, what did you think of it before I mention it now? Outside or both inside and outside? :)

I think it's only common because we're used to seeing photographs from the outside, not inside. Some art might limit the person's ability to take photos on the inside to keep from subjecting the art to harsh light, so that could also have an effect on it. Honestly, I never thought about it before now, but I would assume there are certain places that are open to tourists on the inside, as long as they're safe and can be protected from curious hands.2
