NYC Museums to Finally Reopen Following Months-Long Closures

Most locations were forced to close temporarily since mid-March.

With some of New York City‘s iconic landmarks like the Metropolitan Museum of Art temporarily closed for months now, the city’s governor Andrew Cuomo has finally announced that museums will be reopening starting August 24. Taking to Twitter, Cuomo shared that institutions must follow safety precautions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

“Twenty-five percent occupancy. Timed ticketing required. Pre-set staggering entry. Face coverings enforced and controlled traffic flow,” the governor announced. While all five boroughs of the city entered the fourth phase of its reopening plan last month, cultural venues were kept closed. NYC’s roster of institutions resuming businesses includes the Met Museum, which closed on March 13. Its Fifth Avenue location will be opening doors again on August 29, while the Met Cloisters in Washington Heights will remain closed until further notice.

Other museums that have announced reopening dates include the American Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Jewish Heritage on September 9. Meanwhile, the Guggenheim, Museum of Modern Art and the New Museum have yet to announce plans.
