Although INAH’s Palacio Cantonis due to open Thursday, most other museums are still closed without a date to open their doors.

Such is the case of the Museum of the Song in La Mejorada, where a security guard told La Jornada Maya that said that they have not received any instructions regarding the resumption of activities. It was the same at Casa de Montejo and the Museum of the City.

For the moment, the Fernando García Ponce-Macay Museum next to the San Idelfonso Cathedral is inaccessible. The entranceway at the Pasaje de la Revolución remains closed. No one answers the institution’s phones.

The Palacio Canton Regional Museum of Anthropology on the Paseo de Montejo is joining archaeological sites in welcoming back the public. It will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, with access ending at 4:30. At Dzibilchaltún, the Museum of the Mayan People will be open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday.

Archaeological zones will open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Sunday. The last visitors will be allowed access at 4.

For Chichen Itza, tour operators are asked to schedule groups of no more than 10 people between 11 a..m. and 2 p.m.

To enter archaeological zones and museums, the public must wear face masks upon arrival. Visitors must maintain, at all times, a healthy distance, establishing a separation between people of at least 1.5 meters, with the exception of children, who must be accompanied by an adult.

Visitors are encouraged to avoid physical contact with railings, doors, signage or surfaces.
