Visit rules "Corona"

Visit rules "Corona"

Dear visitors,

let's start with the good news: On Tuesday, May 5th, our museum will be open to you again. We ask for your understanding that the reopening is connected with a number of restrictions, behavioural and hygienic measures, which we kindly ask you to take into account in your own interest and in that of the other visitors. At this point we would like to inform you about the measures in detail:


  • The permanent exhibition The Human Adventure will be open again from 5th May. The exhibition is only accessible via the main entrance (room "Transparent Man") in the "one-way street" principle. Due to the increased risk of infection, some hands-on and touch areas must be kept out of service. This applies in particular to the exhibition area "Remembering - Thinking - Learning". We ask for your understanding! Disinfectant dispensers and disposable gloves are available at the exhibition entrance. Audio guides are disinfected and can be borrowed at the cash desk. You can download the audio guide and a tour in German Sign Language as an app online:

  • The Children's Museum The World of the Senses will remain closed until further notice. Unfortunately, the numerous touch stations in the exhibition and the size of the rooms do not allow exhibition operations.
  • The new special exhibition Future Food. Food for Tomorrow’s World will be on accessible from 30th May.



  • The regular opening hours apply: Tue to Sun, holidays: 10 to 18 h, Mon closed (1st June open)
  • Until 29th May all museum tickets are reduced by 50%, from 30th May onwards the regular admission prices apply.

Also our events can unfortunately not take place until further notice. The accompanying programme to the exhibition "Future Food" is particularly affected by this.
