Marskell said TheMuseum could take up to 800 people under provincial guidelines, but it will take a walk before it nears its long-awaited reopening.

“Of course, we pay attention to security and not just security and we know that it is safe because we have cleaned it, but also to the feeling of security of our visitors and guests,” said the CEO.

“So we offer season tickets, but only around 125 for one entry that you can enter at any time during these two hours.”
