Rules on Obligatory Tests and Face Masks
In accordance with the regulations announced by the Berlin Senate, all visitors to the museums must present a negative COVID-19 test result from a point-of-care antigen (PoC) rapid test (so-called Corona rapid test) or a negative PCR test result that is no more than 24 hours old. Self-tests are not acceptable for this purpose. People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and whose second shot was more than 15 days ago do not have to present a negative COVID-19 test result. Information on test centres can be found at: www.test-to-go.berlin.
Visitors (aged 14 years and over) are required to wear an FFP2 face mask in all indoor areas of the museums. Children between 6 and 14 years of age may wear a surgical-style mask instead.
Number of visitors
In accordance with the current pandemic-related regulations enforced by the State of Berlin, visitors numbers are to be kept to a maximum of 1 visitor per 40 square metres for all spaces within the museum, to ensure that social distancing guidelines can be observed.
Recording contact details
In order to protect visitors and to ensure rapid contact-tracing, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is obliged to document the presence of visitors in the museums. Contact details are therefore recorded upon entry.
