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.
Please be aware: Requests for permission to film, photograph, or record audio for commercial purposes will be processed within 2 weeks.

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.
