For many passionate travelers, no trip can go without a visit to a couple of museums. They’re amongst the safest places to visit right now since it’s pretty easy to maintain social distance, especially if you follow these five steps.

Crucial Info

The first step of planning your socially distant museum visit is checking if the museum you want to visit is open in the first place since many closed their doors due to COVID-19.

Avoid the Tours

Museum visits with a licensed guide can be very informative and fun, but exploring the exhibits on your own is a much better option than joining a group of tourists.

Follow the Rules

Wearing a face covering and abiding the social distancing rules is a must everywhere you go, and museums are no exception.

Time Your Visit

To avoid the crowds, you should consider visiting the museum early in the morning when the least people are around. If you think that spending hours indoors with your mask on will be too challenging, plan what you want to see in advance.

Virtual Tours

If all of this sounds like too much work, you can try visiting museums from the comfort of your home. Many of them offer virtual tours that you can enjoy without going out.
