    (ANSAmed) - TURIN, MAY 26 - The Egyptian Museum in Turin is reopening to the public with reduced hours after a long closure due to the coronavirus emergency. The museum will open on Tuesday, June 2, for free from 10 am until 6 pm. It will be mandatory to book tickets online. Director Christian Greco and President Evelina Christillin chose to celebrate Republic Day with the free opening.

    Starting on June 5, the Egyptian Museum will be open three days a week, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am until 6 pm, with a discounted ticket for all visitors. The museum shop will be open. Groups will also be managed differently with guided tours open to a maximum of 12 people with two options: a 50-minute tour for 40 euros and a 90-minute tour for 70 euros. Tickets for a tour guided by an Egyptologist can only be bought online. Visitors will have their temperature take when they enter the museum and facemasks will be mandatory (and provided by the museum to those who don't have them). Several hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed throughout the museum and only a limited number of visitors will be allowed inside the rooms.
