The museum closed down late February amid the COVID-19 scare and only opened its doors for one day back on July 26 to a select few local lottery winners. Now, it’s officially allowing visitors starting September 5 and launching ticket sales from 10 AM on August 25.

Advance purchase of tickets will only be for the days of September 5 to 14 (except September 8 and 9) with timed entry slots from 10 AM to 3 PM on weekends (with a closure time of 6 PM) and from 10 AM to 1 PM on weekdays (with a closure time of 4 PM).

Sale of tickets for the days of September 16 and beyond will be announced on a later date, depending on the local public health situation. Admission of guests will also be limited to a certain number to enforce social distancing measures.

The museum also released a number of videos to show the safety procedures being done and the new rules to be implemented so that visitors can enjoy their time without worries.
