Press release, 07.05.2021

The health of Berliners is close to our hearts: the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin is once again stepping up its efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Therefore, from Monday 10 May 2021, in cooperation with the Malteser Hilfsdienst and until further notice, there will be a Covid testing station. It is located in the area of the main entrance next to the denture of the extinct basking shark Megalodon.

Testing is done without prior appointment. The pass4all app is used. The process is very simple: download the app, register once, scan the QR code, check in. If no smartphone is available, a solution will be offered at the test station. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm.

Admission is contactless, secure and fast, because the health of Berliners is close to our hearts. By the way, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin is already looking forward to opening its doors again to all interested parties. The date depends on the requirements of the state of Berlin and has moved a little closer due to the joint efforts and the resulting drop in the number of cases. Then it will once again be a case of booking an online ticket, going to the test station in the museum and looking forward to a positive exhibition experience with a negative test!

Even if there is currently no possibility to view the originals in the exhibition: With #fürNatur digital, the museum can still be experienced online. To this end, the digital offerings have been continuously expanded - from the smartphone app Naturblick, to the 11-language barrier-free digital guide, the YouTube series #Wissenswert, to the podcasts "Beats & Bones" and "Süßes oder Saurier".
