The Latvian Museum of Natural History takes part in the Latvian Museum Association's campaign to encourage visitors to return to the museum, assuring them of the additional measures taken on behalf of public health and well-being. The campaign “TiekamiesTagad” (“Let's meet now!" or "See you now!") is accompanied by the internationally understood symbol for “Fragile: Handle with care”. The theme of this visual will be maintained in the hygienic and distancing posters displayed throughout Latvian museums.
