MÉRIDA, Yucatan, April 14, 2023.- Nine museums in Yucatán will open their doors with special tours that the public can take during the evenings as part of Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal’s instruction to provide recreational spaces for citizens and visitors.
The Ministry of Culture and the Arts (SEDECULTA), through the Directorate of Museums and Heritage and the Network of Museums of Yucatan (REDMY), worked on this proposal that will allow people to visit the halls and see the pieces from a new perspective.
In this way, the public interested in appreciating the exhibitions from a different perspective and living a different experience in these spaces of knowledge, culture and art will be able to do so in the nine participating museums through this program that will begin in April and conclude in December.
On the third Wednesday of each month, a space will receive a group of people who will have the opportunity to admire its spaces full of history, pieces and objects that make up the various exhibitions on different themes.
The program will begin on April 19 at the Museo de Historia Natural del Ayuntamiento de Mérida, at 7:00 pm, with a 60-minute tour. Admission will be free, with a limited capacity of 60 people, and those interested should register by emailing email@example.com to reserve their place. Minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The eight remaining spaces are the Museo Regional de Antropología “Palacio Cantón”, which will join the night tour on May 17; the Palacio de la Música Interactive Museum, on June 21; the Ateneo de Yucatán Contemporary Art Museum (MACAY), on July 19, and the Popular Art Museum of Yucatán (MAPY), on August 16.
As well as the Casa Montejo, on September 20; the Chicxulub Crater Science Museum, on October 18; the Yucatecan Song Museum, on November 15; and the Maya World of Merida (GMMMM), on December 20.
The purpose of this project is to inform the members of REDMY about the collections and exhibits currently on display in their halls and to strengthen the bonds of collaboration between them.
In addition to offering the public another alternative in the cultural billboard at night in Mérida, to learn about the fascinating world of these places from a new opportunity to look at the exhibitions in a different environment.
