If museums were allowed to reopen, they would open their doors to the limited number of museum visitors, according to the Department of Archaeology & National Museum under the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture.
The department focuses on exploration, preservation and restoration of both tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Additionally, they open the museum for the public in the regions and states. Nevertheless, the museums are temporarily closed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
They have prepared for necessary measures if allowed to reopen. The number of visitors will be limited depending on the size of the museum. Furthermore, to avoid the crowd, the museum-goers must submit online registration first and set the arrangement for date and time to visit the museum. They must register through https://museumsmyanmar.com when reopening.
The online registration system has been done for the National Museum (Nay Pyi Taw), National Museum (Yangon), Bagan Archaeological Museum and Mandalay Palace. The online platform will proceed for other museums as well. Moreover, the online registration system will be practised for those who want to pay homage to Bagan temples during the set time.
The visitors can avoid the unnecessary crowd and queuing to buy the tickets with the help of online registration. The museums will also comply with health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
