Museums and galleries in Los Angeles received a green light to reopen on June 12. But don’t expect to go exhibit-hopping anytime soon. With limited, advance-ticket entrances only, social distancing and countless COVID-19 safety measures to iron out first, here is what museumgoers can expect this summer and early fall.
Just in time for Father’s Day weekend, The Petersen Automotive Museum plans to reopen on June 19. The new hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and all tickets must be purchased in advance. The visits will be timed in two-hour increments. All visitors over the age of two must wear masks at all times, remain six feet apart from others, and use hand sanitation stations. Guests will also be given a complimentary stylus when entering to push elevator buttons and to sign for any purchases. The museum recommends that patrons bring their own earbuds. With more than 100,000 square feet of space housing over 400 cars, the venue can provide a socially distanced outing. And, Drago Ristorante is open for a bite to eat afterwards.
