Measures against coronavirus (COVID-19)
Museums are closing again starting 24 april
On Friday, 23 April 2021, the new Infection Protection Act will come into force, which means that from 24 April 2021 onwards, the so-called "emergency brake" will apply to both the interior and exterior of the museums. The Berlin Senate had passed the 2nd Infection Control Measures Ordinance at the beginning of March, as a result of which more than 30 museums were temporarily open.
We will keep you up to date on how things are progressing.
It is encouraging to see that the number of online programmes offered by the museums is growing steadily. You are cordially invited to discover these digital offerings for yourself: For example, visit an exhibition from home, listen to a curator talk, browse through online collections or explore the Museum Island virtually. An overview of the digital offerings of Berlin's museums is provided in our service article and the calendar of events.
Prevention is the order of the day. Support and solidarity are still just as important: because of the renewed visitation freeze, the museums have to cope with further 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 compiled an article on the possibilities for young people.
