Visiting the Museum

Visiting the Museum

Access for vaccinated, recovered, tested (no self-test) persons only. Please show valid proof at the entrance of the museum. We recommend booking a time slot ticket through our Online Shop. The number of visitors to our exhibitions is limited. Spontaneous visits are still possible, but there may be waiting times.

  • A time slot can be booked through our Online Shop.
  • Please report to the museum within your booked time slot of 20 minutes, register and then purchase your ticket at the museum ticket office. Please make a cashless payment if possible. We accept all EC and credit cards except American Express. Once you have bought your ticket, please head straight to the exhibition to avoid crowds in the foyer and on the stairs.

Rules of Hygiene and Conduct

  • Adults and young people aged 16 and over must wear a medical mask in the entire Münchner Stadtmuseum. A mouth and nose cover 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.
