I always have a tripod with me and your comment is absolutely spot on but there has only been 1 museum out of about 100 I have visited over the years that allow the use of a tripod.

The closest I can get to stabilization is a monopod that I also use as a walking stick.

I'll be taking a light travel tripod but do you have a recommendation for a monopod that is collapsible and can double as a walking stick?

Thanks!

This works well for me

There are cheaper options but...

I also have a Gitzo which works better but that really does look like photo gear when the area is 'sensitive'.
