Making your visit safe

A few simple rules for a safe visit to the Gallery

In the interests of visitor safety, we have adopted the following precautions for access to the Gallery: 

  1. Any visitor with influenza symptoms or whose body temperature is over 37.5° C will not be admitted.
  2. An obligatory body temperature reading will be taken using a thermal scanner before visitors are admitted to the ticket office.
  3. Visitors must maintain a safe social distance of at least one metre: markers have been installed on the floor to indicate how and where to queue for admission to the ticket office.
  4. Admission is only granted to visitors who wear a face mask and sanitise their hands, using the dispensers provided in the ticket office, along the visit itinerary and in the bathrooms.
  5. Use of the lifts is currently restricted to visitors with limited mobility and just one escort each.
  6. Audio guides are currently not available.
  7. Only one person will be admitted to the ticket office and the bookshop at a time and at no time may there be more than two people in each.
  8. Visitors must sanitise their hands before using the lockers.

Visitor access is monitored room by room: updated information will be provided at the ticket office if admission is suspended temporarily because the rooms have reached maximum capacity.

Please note that rooms 38, 39 and 40 of the Gallery are temporarily closed to visitors for reorganisation operations.

The museum is committed to offering the public as extensive a set of opening hours as possible, so as to comply with the criteria of opening to the public and of the security and safety of state museums and cultural venues as stipulated in the Ministerial Decree dated 30 June 2015, pending the completion of the employment procedures whose purpose is to overcome the current staff shortages and increase the numbers available for service.
