After long months of only virtual visits, many of us are asking when museums in Barcelona reopen again?
In the process of the coronavirus de-escalation plan, the city council of Barcelona is implementing the measures to reopen the museums soon, but when exactly?
When Will Museums in Barcelona Reopen in 2020?
Musuems in Barcelona can reopen in the Phase 1 of the de-escalation plan, with the capacity limited to 30%. However, the process of preparation of all the sanitary safety measures for both the staff and visitors will take a few weeks – not sooner than from 1st June.
The biggest art museums of Barcelona (list below) are planning to coordinate their reopening at roughly the same date, which hasn’t been decided yet in details. We know however that it will be in the week starting from 8th June. The museums managed by other entities have other estimated opening times, some a week earlier (1st June), other a week later (15th June).
There will be no cultural activities for now, only the galleries will be open for visits.

Here is the list of the reopening dates of some of the main museums of Barcelona. We will add new museums to the list, so stay tuned.
The visits will be possible most probably only with pre-paid tickets or in organized small groups, with rules of social distancing. Plan your visit in advance.
