Museums begin to open their doors in Latvia

On May 13, ten museums will open their doors for visitors, said Elīna Vikmane, representative of the Latvian Museum Society, to Latvian Television.

Other museums will join in every day. Vikmane stressed that museum work had never ceased during the emergency: only visits had stopped.

The first visitors will be allowed in museums with large outdoor areas - Rundāle, Turaida, Daugava museums - as well as multiple smaller museums. Larger indoor museums will take longer to prepare their setup.

All latest information on museum openings, expositions, and working hours will be available on the website muzeji.lv, museum homepages and social networks, said Vikmane. 

Museum visitors will have to take into account not only general assembly rules but also specific conditions related to museum visits, as reported previously. 

"We call for understanding if a museum does not provide access to touch devices or children's play corners, or other shared activities. This is related to safety concerns," said Elīna Vikmane.

Visitors are also asked not to spray disinfectants in the vicinity of artworks.
