After the coronavirus crisis forced museums around the world to shutter so as to mitigate the spread of the virus, some institutions are beginning to make tentative plans to reopen—albeit with some precautions. Some museums in Germany, for example, are requiring that visitors use credit cards instead of cash and that ticketing agents conduct business from behind plexiglass shields, while others in China have been instituting temperature checks for visitors to the museum. And still other institutions have planned measures for practicing social distancing within their gallery spaces, with local museum groups offering guidelines for how many people can be within certain areas a time.

Below is a continually updated list, organized alphabetically by country, of major museums that have announced when they will open their doors to the public once again. Because of the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the pandemic, many opening dates are subject to change.
