Baguio, Philippines – 4 months since the BenCab Museum closed its doors on the 17th of March in accordance with quarantine regulations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The museum reopened its doors to visitors last Friday.
The museum that houses a significant collection of Bulol, wooden carvings depicting rice guardians, has appointed their own facemask-donning frontliner to remind guests to keep their masks on at all times.
The museum shared their safety guidelines:
“Visitors entering the Museum premises must wear face masks, have their temperature taken, complete health declaration forms, and practice safe distancing upon entry. We reserve the right to deny entry to any visitor who refuses to undertake these precautionary measures, shows signs of illness or has a temperature of 37.6ºC and above.
Additionally, museum capacity will be kept below 50% on a room-by-room basis so that visitors can maintain safe distancing at a minimum of one meter. Group tours are temporarily suspended.”
Guest can visit their Café Sabel for their coffee fix during their museum visit and enjoy fresh air in the museum’s EcoTrail where guided tours of the BenCab Farm & Garden EcoTrail are available when weather permits.
