From the end of the 20th century, tourism has begun to develop at a rapid pace.

From this point of view, the classification and clustering of practices for managing the excess flow of visitors can become necessary information for museums, since it will help to cope with the problem more effectively.Thus, it is necessary to study the methods of the popular museums in the world to manage excess visitor flows, as this will help to develop measures to regulate excess visitor flows that will meet all the requirements for museums in a changing environment. This paper answers two research questions. The research was carried out by analyzing the official websites of museums. As a result of the study, all the methods found were divided into three groups, which in turn were divided into 4 clusters depending on the frequency of use of the previously identified groups. In addition, an analysis of the current situation in connection with COVID - 19 was carried out, as well as a survey with the participation of representatives of museums and chief doctors. Thus, museums received recommendations that will help to correctly redistribute the flow of visitors; organize various formats of work with visitors, reducing the load on the most popular sections of the exhibition; to achieve a high level of satisfaction with the visit to the museum by visitors.
