The museum reopen from May 20


The Latvian Museum of Natural History reopen from May 20. 

The Latvian Museum of Natural History takes part in the Latvian Museum Association's campaign to encourage visitors to return to the museum, assuring them of the additional measures taken on behalf of public health and well-being. The campaign “TiekamiesTagad” (“Let's meet now!" or "See you now!") is accompanied by the internationally understood symbol for “Fragile: Handle with care”. The theme of this visual will be maintained in the hygienic and distancing posters displayed throughout Latvian museums.

In view of the spread of Covid-19 in Latvia and globally, we urge you to be responsible and take precautionary measures!

Please refrain from visiting the museum if you develop signs of an infectious respiratory disease or if you are mandated to observe self-isolation, home quarantine or strict isolation.
