Visiting the Museum

Visiting the Museum

Access to the museum and events is only possible according to the 2G plus-rule, meaning for vaccinated or recovered persons with a recent negative rapid test (no self-test) only, applying to people aged 14 years and over. Persons, who have received a booster shot (3. vaccination), dated two weeks back or more, do not need additional proof in the form of a negative test. Also, people who have completely recovered from a vaccine breakthrough infection (infection after complete immunization) do not need additional test evidence. For students from 14 years of age, 2G (vaccinated or recovered) applies in addition to the submission of a rapid test or student ID. Children up to the age of 14 can visit the museum without proof. Please show valid proof as well as your identification at the entrance of the museum. We recommend booking a ticket through our Online Shop. The number of visitors to our exhibitions is limited; if there is a high number of visitors, there may be waiting times.

Rules of Hygiene and Conduct

  • Adults and young people aged 16 and over must wear a FFP2-mask in the entire Münchner Stadtmuseum. A medical mask is sufficient for children and adolescents aged 6 to 15 years.

  • Keep a distance to other people of at least 1.5 metres.

  • Wash your hands regularly and observe the sneezing and coughing etiquette.

  • Be considerate towards other visitors:

    • Keep to the right in order to ensure the minimum distance to on-coming people.
    • Wait at narrow entrances and stairs until the area beyond is free again.
    • Do not enter smaller rooms unless the safety distance of 1.5 to 2 metres can be upheld.
    • Do not dwell too long in front of individual exhibits in order to allow other visitors to look at the works.
  • The use of lifts is reserved for visitors with mobility restrictions. Please observe the rules of hygiene in lifts and let other passengers get out of the lift – whilst maintaining the safety distance – before you get out yourself.
