Arlington, Holocaust Museum: Stop catching Pokemon here

1 post in this topic

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Arlington National Cemetery requested Tuesday that smartphone users refrain from "catching" Pokemon when they visit.

Like many other landmarks, the museum and the military cemetery are featured in the popular new "Pokemon Go" game. Players can stumble upon Pokemon while wandering their grounds.

The museum is a Pokestop — a place where players can get free in-game items— and online users say the cemetery also contains Pokestops.

Museum officials are trying to have it removed from the game, Communications Director Andrew Hollinger said in a statement. He said playing the game inside a memorial to victims of Nazism is "extremely inappropriate."
