The pandemic caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) has demanded a series of changes in the operations of the Museu da Casa Brasileira – an institution of the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo – among them, the free entry logistics.
Until the month of March, the days of free visits to the museum took place during weekends and holidays, but – with the resumption of face-to-face activities with the public on April 24 (Saturday) – they only occur on Tuesdays. The prior purchase of tickets will also be available through the online system, providing greater agility in access.
The new entry policy aims to optimize the institution’s financial collection, in order to preserve the quality of its physical and online operations. “By making this change, we will be adopting a functioning pattern that already exists in large museological institutions in São Paulo that have been operating for free on Tuesdays for years”, explains Miriam Lerner, general director of the MCB.
Free admission must be made exceptionally at the museum’s box office, while tickets for visits from Wednesday to Sunday can be purchased online or in person.
With the security protocols anticipated for the reopening and training of employees for strategic areas, the Museu da Casa Brasileira has a set of actions to avoid the risks of contamination by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the disease COVID-19.
Among the various measures implemented, the use of masks on the premises of the MCB will be mandatory and there will be signs at the entrance of each exhibition room with the maximum allowed capacity, for a total of up to 25 people distributed in the exhibition areas. The visitation routes are now guided by trained employees and floor signage. Umbrellas were installed in the garden in order to indicate the safe distance between groups of people. In addition to these measures, specific bins for disposing of masks and tissues are also available at the site. The full list of adopted hygiene and safety protocols and measures can be accessed on our website.
