In addition, a maximum 24-hour certified negative test result must be available. Testing isdone in cooperation with Malteser Hilfsdienst without prior appointment and during the museum's opening hours (Tues-Fri 09:30 am - 06:00 pm, Sat/Sun/holidays 10:00 am-06:00 pm). The pass4all app is used. The process is very simple: download the app, register once, scan the QR code, check in. If you don't have a smartphone, a solution will be offered at the test station.

In addition, there is a bilingual audio guide for children as well as a highlight tour for the deaf with videos in German sign language.

To protect our staff and visitors, the protection and hygiene concept applies.
