Welcome to the Press Room of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

This is where you will find current press releases and press images, as well as the press archive. We have also compiled an overview of upcoming press dates for you. Applications for permissions to film or photograph can be found in the separate section Service, which also contains general information on your visit to SMB museums. If you wish to be invited to the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin press conferences, then you need to get on our press mailing list. To do this, please send an email with your request to Anne Schäfer Junker and attach a scanned copy of your press pass. Your personal data will be treated confidentially, in keeping with our privacy policy and will not be passed on to third parties.

Please note: We are currently unable to process  applications for recording permission (for film, photography, and audio) not directly related to current press coverage. These applications will only be processed from 3 June 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Applications for recording permission related to press coverage on current events and exhibitions will, however, be processed during this time. Please send applications to the Communication, Press & Sponsoring department, as usual. 

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
