Press release, 30.04.2020

The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin is pleased to be able to open its exhibition to visitors again from Tuesday, 12 May 2020. Highlights such as the Dinosaur Hall, the Wet Collection, the Biodiversity Wall and the Taxidermy Exhibition can be experienced as a tour. Interactive exhibition elements such as the popular Jurascopes cannot be made available. The special exhibition "Parasites - Life Undercover" can still only be experienced online, as the live digitalisation.

To protect our staff and visitors, we have developed a protection and hygiene concept. The exhibition may only be visited alone, in pairs or with members of your own household. It is compulsory to wear a mouth-and-nose cover, which you must bring along yourself. A distance of 2 metres between visitors is required. The number of visitors is therefore limited. In order to implement this concept, tickets will be sold exclusively online from 7 May 2020:…

Two daily time slots are offered. Mon - Fri from 9:30 - 14:00 and 14:00 - 18:00. Sat - Sun and holidays from 10:00 - 14:00 and 14:00 - 18:00. A contingent of 300 tickets per time slot will be activated for the start of the measures, whereby only single tickets and reduced tickets are available. Group bookings are not possible.

As the Museum Café will be closed, it is permitted to bring along drinks. Jackets and bags up to a size of DIN A4 may be brought into the exhibition, as the cloakroom is not available. Lockers are also available.

You will find current information on the opening of the exhibition on our homepage:

Even those who do not buy an online ticket can stay in contact with the museum. With #fürNatur digital, the museum with its collection of 30 million objects can be experienced online, in order to inspire enthusiasm for nature and allow all interested parties to participate in the research process. All offers - from the smartphone app Naturblick, the virtual museum visit with Google Arts & Culture and the Citizen Science project Bees & Bytes, to the new YouTube series #Wissenswert.

Important note for journalists, film crews and photographers: Access to the exhibition can only be granted after consultation and timely registration with the press office and will be regulated in order to comply with safety regulations. Spontaneous visits are not possible.
