Information on the reopening of the City of Paris museums:

Paris Musées is pleased to announce the gradual reopening of its museums.

Those that were closed in mid-March due to the health crisis will reopen according to two dates to come: 

> June 16th: 
- Musée Bourdelle,
- Musée de Libération de Paris-Musée du général Leclerc-musée Jean Moulin,
- Musée de la Vie Romantique, 
- Balzac House, 
- Petit Palais, Paris Museum of Fine Arts, 
- Catacombs of Paris.

> July 7th:
- Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, 
- Cognac-Jay Museum.

In these museums, the exhibitions that were on display before closing will be extended; the others will be inaugurated, and visitors will be able to discover them, in the best sanitary conditions, for the public as well as for the museum staff.

The other objective is the continuation of the renovation work that was under way before the closure in mid-March at the Musée Carnavalet, History of Paris Museum, the Zadkine Museum, and the Victor Hugo House.

The Palais Galliera, meanwhile, will gradually complete its work and reopen in Autumn 2020.
