Prado and Versailles One of Europe’s museums to re-open but with Limitations

Among the most important art museums in the entire world managed to re-open on Saturday following the lockdown in Spain was loosened.

But a fifth of those paintings at the Prado in Madrid is on screen and much fewer people will probably be sold a ticket to watch social distancing.

France’s Palace of Versailles also opened without the great number of tourists that normally visit.

Amounts will then be limited to 400 visitors every hour to this Saturday and Sunday.

France’s ministry of culture said that the recent circumstances presented a chance for French individuals to contact their heritage.

“There aren’t any worldwide visitors. Nevertheless, it’s just an excellent chance for our compatriots to find or rediscover the legacy, such as nearby, since we don’t always realize that anyplace in France there’s a tradition of exceptional richness,” Franck Riester explained.

All of France’s national museums might have opened June 2 but they will now be staggered.

Ahead of the pandemic, it was used to attract approximately 15,000 visitors daily.
