Museums are starting to open their doors once again...
... and things will look very different during this process. As they navigate the unknown waters of reopening in the midst of coronavirus, we've put together a list of things to keep in mind when you plan your visit.
3 Things to Consider Before Your Next Trip
Each museum will create its own tailored solution, within government guidelines, as they begin to reopen. The standard at one museum may not be the common practice at another. As they quickly create a completely new operational policy, things may be changing day by day. Here are a few tips when planning your next visit:
#1. Know before you go! Be sure to review the museum's website.
Plan ahead and be prepared as policies may change on a weekly basis. Be sure to check out the museum's visiting guidelines on their website before you leave. Expect to wear a protective face mask, use hand-sanitizing stations, and follow markers on the floor to promote 6 feet of space, among other protocols.
#2. Be patient.
A "one-size-fits-all" solution simply does not exist. Each museum’s location, architecture, and layout call for different protocols. Museums around the world are working diligently to create ways to interact safely with exhibits (think styluses and voice & gesture-based tools) so feel free to email your thoughts and suggestions to your favorite establishments, while keeping in mind that museums are coming up with new, safe, creative ideas every day!
#3. Support them by supporting 1000Museums!
