The Louvre in Paris, the world’s most visited museum and home to the Mona Lisa, reopens on Monday i.e., 6th July 2020, but with following the novel corona virus guidelines provided by WHO. The Carrousel and Tuileries gardens are open during the usual hours.
The Louvre museum has been closed since March 13 and this has already led “to losses of over 40 million euros,” said its director Jean-Luc Martinez. All visitors must book a time slot at www.ticketlouvre.fr in order to enter the museum. Visitors must bring their own masks. Sanitizer will be provided at both entrances to disinfect hands and must be used before entering the building.
From July until September 2020, the museum will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. every day except Tuesdays.
Two entrances to the museum will be open. For safety reasons the cloakroom will be closed that means no big luggage will be allowed in the building. Positions have been marked in front of the Mona Lisa painting, where tourists routinely pose for selfies, to ensure social distancing.
