SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — The de Young Museum in San Francisco is finally reopening its doors Friday at 25 percent capacity.
Starting at 9:30 a.m., general admission will give people access to the museum on a timed entry basis to ensure proper social distancing in the galleries.
Museum officials say physical distancing will be facilitated with signage through the entire place –from admissions to the store to the cafe. And just like everywhere else, face coverings are required for everyone.
Visits are also self-guided now, and cleaning routines will be more frequent. Visitors will also be able to take advantage of hand sanitizer stations.
“We have a great HVAC system for clean air. We have an intense cleaning regime. So we feel it is very safe for people to come visit here,” said museum CEO Tom Campbell. “It just takes common sense to keep that distance just like you would at the grocery store.”
The museum has been waiting to show its new exhibit about Frida Kahlo. It’s been sitting in the dark for months now. The exhibit, titled “Frida Kahlo – Appearances Can Be Deceiving” is a series of paintings and self-portraits by the Mexican artist, examining her relationship with San Francisco.
