- The Museu de la Música reopens on 9 June and will be offering activities for children until September
- During the month of June there will be a reduced admission charge for all visitors to the Museum
- Summer activities for children will take place from 25 June to 10 September and will be aimed at summer schools and activity centres
After being closed for nearly three months, Barcelona’s Museu de la Música will be reopening on 9 June. To make the Museum more accessible, there will be a reduced admission price (€4.50) for all visitors. This measure is intended to encourage the public to return to the Museum.
When the Museum opens, all safety measures required by the authorities will be in place. Its capacity will be reduced and a one-way circuit has been established to facilitate the orderly movement of visitors. In smaller sections only a limited number of visitors will be admitted at any one time.
In accordance with health regulations, the interactive screens will be temporarily disabled and it will not be possible to use the instruments normally available to visitors.
The audio guide service has been specially adapted, as digital tablets are not allowed. A new playlist will be available with original recordings of 34 instruments in the collection. This can be downloaded onto a mobile phone using a QR code.
The temporary exhibition which was open before the lockdown, dedicated to Muzio Clementi, will remain closed for some days, but when it reopens, it will be extended until the autumn.
The service for consulting library resources and the documents and instruments in the collections will continue to be available online only until Barcelona enters Phase 3 of the lockdown easing process. The Museum will then make materials available to in-person visitors by prior arrangement (48 hours).
In summer the Museum belongs to children
As it does every year, the Museu de la Música will offer summer activities for children, so that they can discover and enjoy the wonderful world of musical instruments. In response to the current situation and in order to make the facilities available to more families, the activities will begin on 25 June and, for the first time, will continue until 10 September (except the week of 10 to 17 August).
The programme is aimed at summer schools and centres that programme leisure activities. Bookings can be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 93 2563650.
Five types of interactive visits and workshops will be available for children in different age ranges. The activities take participants on an audio-visual tour during which they see different instruments, discover the world of wind and percussion, the fascination of modern electronic instruments and, of course, have fun playing instruments.
