Covid 19 Information :
The Musée des Gets will be one of the few to open this first day of the end of confinement!
Our association is therefore happy that cultural life can restart. All the conditions will be respected so that customers will be reassured at the idea of coming with family or friends. Thus, for example, the tour circuit that already existed will be clearly marked out. The entire museum team is really looking forward to reopening and reviving its automatic musical instruments. We have been working hard to complete the ongoing arrangements that were started during this period of closure for a better reception and have installed the protection and distancing devices.

For the schedules during this rather peculiar period, they will be slightly reduced in order to ensure the necessary cleaning and disinfection. The opening every day and over a longer period of time will be reviewed in June if the sanitary measures are relaxed.
