It had a very small number of people, which made it possible to enjoy the place as if it were just for me, ”said Carla Pereira, a resident of Belo Horizonte. In addition to reducing capacity, the Institute also adopted several other preventive measures, such as making it available of gel alcohol totems, the limitation of the number of people in certain galleries and even the closing of some of them because they are very closed and without natural ventilation. Although the environment has a lot of green area, the use of masks is mandatory and the administration advises that each visitor take their water bottle, since the drinking fountains are prohibited as a security measure.
