Safely Reopening Victoria - Museums and Galleries

Reopening Museums and Galleries During COVID-19 Guidelines

We are pleased to advise that museums and galleries and other sites ​can now safely reopen in line with Third Steps Statewide Position from 11:59pm on 8 November.

Indoor entertainment venues:

  • Open: Cinemas; music halls, concert halls and auditoriums; galleries and museums; and State Library of Victoria
  • Open for a maximum of 20 people per space (e.g. each screening room, gallery space or auditorium)
  • 1.5m distance between bookings, maximum bookings of 10 people.
  •  Performance times (including film screenings) staggered to minimum interval of 30 mins between sessions to avoid crowds in foyers and bathrooms.

There must be a COVIDSafe Plan in place for each venue and the venue management must ensure that the general workplace restrictions are adhered to.
