Current Information for Visitors During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Since Monday, 2 November 2020, all the museums of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will again remain closed to the public until further notice due to the decision of the Berlin Senate. This measure is intended to minimise the spread of COVID-19. We hope our visitors understand.

Please note that due to the temporary nature of the closure, information on exhibitions, events and opening hours on the website will not be individually adjusted. Regardless of any information on the website, the decision of the Berlin Senate to close the museums applies.

Unfortunately, we also have to cancel events that had already been booked for November and December 2020. All pre-paid bookings will be fully refunded. Please be aware that it will take some time for us to process these refunds.

Annual Tickets

All annual tickets that are affected by the closure of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin since 2 November 2020 will be extended accordingly. The extension is automatic, there is no need to get a new ticket.
