Following the announcement of the new lockdown starting on Friday October 30, 2020, Paris Musée des Arts Décoratifs confirms it is closing again until further notice. Are also closing the Musée Nissim de Camondo, the library of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Ateliers du Carrousel. Even though we are all very sad not to be able to go to museums for a while, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs managed to soften the break-up: all e-tickets, internships, guided tours, workshops and conferences already paid for, will be refunded without having you to ask for it.
But we have some good news: French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Tuesday November 24, 2020 that museums were allowed to reopen starting December 15, if the health situation allows it. The reopening will have to comply with a strict health protocol, the same as the one instated for the first curfew, back to mid-October, including measures such as facemask wearing, groups limited to six people, social distancing and hand sanitizer available.
Starting December 15, we will be able to get to our dearly beloved places soon to admire the Luxes and Harper's Bazaar exhibitions, on hold as long as the museum is closed. This new lockdown is also said to postpone the opening of the compelling Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibition, initially said to open later this year.
The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is not the only place closing down: museums and places receiving the public and said to be non-necessary have to follow the same rule. They will then be able to reopen from mid-December.
