Museums, historical sites to reopen from Friday
The sites that will reopen include the Prem Tinsulanonda Archives and the Banharn-Jamsai Tower in Suphanburi, which was built in honour of late former PM Banharn Silpa-archa and his wife Jamsai, said Prateep Pengtago, the Fine Arts Department’s director general.
Prateep said every venue will register with the “Thai Chana” platform to get a QR code, which visitors can use to leave their phone number as part of a contact-tracing exercise. The platform also allows venues to keep track of the number of visitors as well as collect ratings.
