The British Museum in London will reopen on 27 August for the first time since lockdown, the organisation has announced.
Visitors will need to book in advance to limit numbers and a one-way route will be in place to enable social distancing.
The majority of the ground floor galleries will be open, with highlights including the Rosetta Stone and the Parthenon Sculptures.
The museum plans to reopen more galleries and exhibitions from 21 September.
Museums and galleries in England have been allowed to reopen since 4 July, but many of their doors have remained shut.
