The Civic Museums of Cremona are ready for reopening in full compliance with the anti-Covid-19 rules.

From Wednesday May 27 the Pinacoteca, the Natural History Museum and the Archaeological Museum will reopen their doors, with a new summer timetable aimed at enticing citizens to discover (or rediscover) the collections.

The offices will be open on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 18:00 (therefore extending the afternoon opening by one hour) and on Friday in the afternoon and evening, from 16:00 to 22:00.

Starting from June visits and activities for small groups (no more than 10 people) will be organized in all museums, the calendar of which will be made public shortly.

Still from friday May 29, the bar of the Civic Museum will also be opened in the evening, with the availability of outdoor tables in the courtyard of Palazzo Affaitati.

At the Natural History Museum, in addition to the permanent collections, it will be possible to visit the exhibition “A PO of nature!”, dedicated to the nature of the Cremona area.

At the Archaeological Museum, the reopening will coincide with the preparation of the new bookshop service and with the publication on the website of in-depth information sheets on various issues relating to the museum itinerary, accessible through a QR code.

The Museum of Rural Life will instead be closed, but it will be possible to book the visit on different days and times, according to availability that will be communicated at the time of booking.

On Tuesday June 2, the Violin Museum will reopen. The collections can be visited from 11 to 17. The same time will be observed for ordinary openings, from Wednesday to Sunday; on Friday, however, access will take place, as for the Civic Museums, from 4 to 10 pm. The museum itinerary has been adapted to harmonize use of the contents and guarantees of safety. Finally, the auditions “Il Suono di Stradivari” are temporarily suspended with the tools of the historical collections.
