Spain’s Prado Museum reopens its doors for visitors

One of the world’s greatest galleries will throw open its doors again on Saturday, but in circumstances very different from the past.

People will only be able to enter if they have bought tickets with specific time slots online, submit to a temperature test at the door and wear a face mask throughout the visit. Museum staff in the rooms wear masks and visors.

The Prado, home to masterpieces by Hieronymus Bosch, Diego Velázquez and Francisco Goya, will welcome visitors after its longest closure since the Spanish civil war, more than 80 years ago, Financial Times writes.

The museum shut on March 11 as Spain’s coronavirus outbreak gained pace. Other museums have also been reopened for visitors.
