The European Commission has decided to recommend the reopening of internal borders for June 15 and of borders outside the European Union from July 1 when disorder threatens. Greece is thus already considering reopening its airports to Australian, Chinese and Korean tourists.
The whole museum will not be reopened. Nearly 45,000 m2 will be open to visitors (i.e. more than 60% of the galleries), such as the collections of Egyptian antiquities, Greece and Rome, Italian and northern European sculptures, Italian, Spanish and English paintings, masterpieces of nineteenth-century French painting, crown jewels, sumptuous Napoleon III apartments, etc. But departments will remain closed, such as French sculpture from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the lower level of the Arts of Islam or the second floor retaining French and Northern European paintings.
Guided tours with tour guides can take place. These specialists have been unemployed since the museum closed. Groups will have a maximum of 25 people. The guides will speak into microphones to respect the physical distance, and to avoid shouting and spitting. Visitors will be masked, and will also wear a helmet.newsletter
