The Louvre, which has been closed since March 13 due to the Covid-19 crisis, will reopen on July 6, the management said in a statement.
The world’s most visited museum opens again. Closed since March 13 due to coronavirus pandemic, The Louvre should again be available to visitors from July 6, according to a press release published on the museum’s website Friday, May 29.
Visits will therefore be resumed, but not really as before: “The implementation of a backup system such as the implementation of a new directional sign will provide maximum safety conditions for our visitors in addition to wearing a mask and respecting the recommended barrier gestures,” said the press release.
It is in this context that visitors will be able to discover the expanded exhibition “Artist’s Figure”, as part of the season devoted to Renaissance geniuses.
The opening of the most famous Parisian museum is part of a new phase of deconfinance carried out by the government. The Carousel Garden, which is dependent on the same public facility, opens again on Saturday. The Tuileries garden will be available again on Sunday.
Similarly, the Louvre-Lens Museum is preparing for a gradual reopening: the park and Time Gallery will be available free of charge from next Wednesday; June 10 for the “Black Suns” exhibition, which is free throughout June.
