July 1

The number of Moscow museums that have reopened for visitors has grown. Ten more venues opened their doors as of 1 July: the Memorial Cosmonautics Museum, Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, Father Frost’s Moscow Mansion, North Tushino museum and park complex, Alexander Solzhenitsyn House of Russia Abroad, Alexander Solzhenitsyn Apartment Museum, Museum of Russian Estates, Garden Ring Museum, Zelenograd Museum and the Folk Paintings exhibition hall at the Museum of Russian Lubok and Naïve Art.

So now everyone who wants to take in some art and culture can choose from 60 museums in the city.

“The first two weeks since the museums reopened have been successful,” said Inna Golubeva, Mosgortur agency executive director. “However, safety measures must stay in place. All museum employees and visitors must wear masks and gloves, and keep social distancing in mind. Visitors will have their temperature checked at the entrance. People are advised to buy museums tickets online or pay with contactless cards. Also, all reopened museums additionally sanitise their premises and no mass events will be held in the near future.”

The remaining museums and exhibition venues in the capital are to reopen by mid-September. The complete list of museums open to visitors is available on the Mosgortur website. 

As a reminder, the restrictions introduced in Moscow due to the spread of the coronavirus infection began to be lifted from 12 May. The first museums reopened to visitors on 16 June, including the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Moscow and Timiryazev State Biological Museum.
