Closed since 14 March following the Covid-19 crisis, the Archaeological Museum of the Battle of Gergovia will be ready to welcome its visitors for the summer season, with an opening scheduled for 27 June next.
For several weeks now, the Gergovia Museum’s team have been working on a new organisation of visits in strict compliance with health regulations. In addition to the implementation of preventive measures (compulsory wearing of masks, provision of hydro-alcoholic gel, marking on the ground, etc.), this has required to rethink the reception system, the circulation of the public and the use of interactive tools.
“The aim was to transform these constraints into opportunities,” says Frédéric Nancel, the museum’s director. “For example, a visitor circuit has been set up. It will give a better understanding of the museographical richness of the site. In addition, we have reduced our maximum capacity in the museum. For the visitor, it means more space and calm for an even better experience. “This new visiting arrangement will be finalised very soon, allowing the Gergovia Museum to reopen its doors from Saturday 27 June 2020, every day during the summer, from 1 pm to 7 pm.
In addition to the interior visit, The Archaeological Museum of the Battle of Gergovia is also preparing a programme of guided tours on the Gergovia Plateau and in Corent. They will allow you to rediscover the history of these Arvern sites while enjoying an exceptional natural setting in the open air.
Last novelty, reservations will be mandatory for museum visits and outdoor guided tours. The slots for visits will soon be open for booking on the museum’s website: www.musee-gergovie.fr.
