CHARTER Alliance full member, NEMO, the Network of European Museum Organisations, has gathered information about museum reopenings and closures from 31 European countries. The overview published lists details about reopenings, political and sector communication and hygiene measures taken.
NEMO has gathered information from all their members to portray the status quo of museum operations during the pandemic. The overview lists country-specific information concerning reopenings, national guidelines and advocacy measures. Together with the overview, NEMO has released a statement calling for the comprehensive and sustainable reopening of all museums in Europe, asking policy makers to collaborate with them to reactivate urban life and assist people in finding the new normal.
The network emphasizes that museums need comprehensive and sustainable frameworks and processes to open their doors to the public and stay open during the fluctuating pandemic situation. Stable public funding – now and in the future – is required so museums can resume their activities despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic.
