Is the end of the crisis near for museums? Despite the coronavirus epidemic that keeps on spreading across the world, the musée Marmottan-Monet has announced on its website to be working on a reopening in early June: “As we ease lockdown, the Musée Marmottan Monet is working on its plan to reopen on June the 2nd. In order to ensure your safety, special visiting arrangements have been made” it reads.
A reopening that is yet to take place only if the situation still allows it, as our peers at France Inter say. So far, the Prime Minister nor the Minister for Culture gave details as of the reopening of museums on June 2, as it is said to be the beginning of the second containment exit phase, and consequently, unless contra-indicated, the reopening of these cultural places with a high capacity. For the record, “small museums” have been allowed to reopen on May 11 given they have been authorized by the police.
As for the health measures set up within the museum, they have been listed on the museum’s website: mandatory mask use throughout the visit, hydroalcoholic gel provision, 1 meter of social distancing required with other visitors, reserving your visit timeslot through internet…. Everything has been thought up to welcome art fans in the best conditions possible.
Please note that the access to the museum is limited to 100 people, including 55 in the temporary exhibition gallery, as the tour is limited to 1h per visitor, all the agents are wearing facemasks, access and material (audioguide) are disinfected after each use, moreover changing rooms are closed.
In other, maximum security to go back to museums safely.
