Tourists took more than 50,000 trips to 19 museums in Beijing during the five-day May Day holiday, according to the Beijing Municipal Administration of Cultural Heritage Tuesday.
A total of 19 museums in the capital reopened during the holiday, adopting stringent measures for COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control, such as implementing the real-name booking systems and limiting visiting hours and number of visitors each day to prevent the gatherings of crowds.
The Palace Museum, National Museum of China and the Capital Museum were among the most popular during the holiday.
During the holiday, many other museums in the city moved their exhibitions online, allowing audiences to have a new experience.
China saw nearly 104 million domestic tourist trips in the first four days of the May Day holiday season which started May 1. Domestic tourism revenue generated during the period totaled 43.23 billion yuan (about 6.12 billion U.S. dollars), according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Enditem
