Measures against coronavirus (COVID-19)
Museums are allowed to reopen from March 8th under strict conditions
On 4 March, the Berlin Senate passed the 2nd Infection Protection Measures Ordinance on the basis of a proposal by the Senator for Health, Care and Equality, Dilek Kalayci. This includes the decision that museums will in principle be allowed to reopen from 8 March under strict conditions. This process will probably take some time, not all museums will open at the same time and immediately, ticket reservations will be required in advance. We will keep you up to date: A chronological list can be found here (in German). Please note that a negative test result must be presented from 31 march when visiting any museum or gallery.
There are already many ways to experience museums, online! You are cordially invited to discover the museums' digital offers: For example, visit an exhibition from home, listen to a curator talk, browse through online archives or explore the Museum Island virtually. An overview of the digital offerings of Berlin's museums is provided in a magazine article and in our calendar of events.
Prevention is the order of the day. Support and solidarity are still just as important: because of the prolonged stop in visits, museums will have to cope with financial losses. There are many ways to support Berlin's cultural institutions. On the websites of various houses you will find information on how to donate. You can also join a circle of friends and become a long-term supporter. We have put together in an article on the possibilities for young people.
