Museums and historical sites allowed to open from today in Thailand, although some provinces may still have restrictions

The following is a press release from the Thai Tourism Authority. Their thoughts and opinions are their own.

Bangkok, 10 May 2021 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to inform travelers that five types of learning centers nationwide under the Fine Arts Department are allowed to reopen today, in line with the easing of the COVID-19 measures in a number of provinces.

However, some historical sites or learning centers may remain closed in some provinces in line with the specific provincial orders. Also, reopening dates may vary depending on the situation in each province. (The Pattaya News notes that dark red provinces and places, like Bangkok and Chonburi, will have stricter rules and restrictions around these places in particular.)

Across the country, learning centers under the Fine Arts Department include:

  1. National museums
  2. Historical parks
  3. Archaeological sites registered with the Fine Arts Department
  4. National libraries
  5. National archives

Travelers are recommended to check in advance with each site regarding the opening date and time. When going outside, be reminded to take DMHTT precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19: D – Distancing, M – Mask wearing, H – Handwashing, T – Temperature check, and T – Thai Chana contact tracing application. Kindly note that there is a nationwide mask mandate offenders are liable to a fine of up to 20,000 Baht.
