Russian Museums Welcome Guests
Almost all the museums in Russia have started accepting visitors.
The Moscow Kremlin museums are open to the public, except for the Patriarch's Palace and the ‘Ivan the Great’ Bell Tower. In July 15 the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg also started to accept visitors. Almost all the main museums, exhibition centers, parks and reserves are already welcoming guests. The rest of them will open by the end of July.
The venues should follow all the safety measures. The entry is restricted, and movements inside are regulated. Visits are organized by time slots. A visitor’s stay is also limited to several hours. In most venues tickets must be purchased only online, in the rest of them payment by cash is not allowed. All visitors and staff have to wear masks and gloves and to adhere to the required distancing.
In August, some museums are planning to organize group tours for 5 persons.
