Louvre Museum to Reopen on December 16

The Musée du Louvre and Musée National Eugène-Delacroix in Paris, France, will officially reopen on December 16, after a six weeks closure, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visiting conditions will remain much the same as before the second lockdown, with masks obligatory, social distancing, mandatory bookings and a one-way system to avoid overcrowding.

Among other things, visitors will have the opportunity to visit two exhibitions launched in October: Albrecht Altdorfer: A German Renaissance Master and Body and Soul: Italian Renaissance Sculpture from Donatello to Michelangelo. These exhibitions have already reportedly been visited by almost 50,000 people.

At the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix, the exhibition A Romantic Duel: Delacroix’s Fascination for the Giaour by Lord Byron, which was due to be inaugurated on 18 November, will open to the public on 16 December.
