Hygiene measures at the Jewish Museum Berlin

Beginning on 23 August, you can visit the Jewish Museum Berlin again. In order to ensure your safety and ours, we ask you to abide by the following hygiene measures in all areas that are open to the public

It is obligatory to wear a mask in all areas of the museum. Children up to six years old are excepted. If you are seated at an event or at the café, you can remove your mask. We also recommend wearing a mask in the museum garden and the Garden of the Diaspora. Please remember to bring your mask.

Please maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other visitors and museum employees. You will be reminded about this at certain points in the museum where space is limited.

Please wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.

Disinfection stations are to be found at regular intervals throughout the museum's public spaces. The stations are pedal-operated. Please refrain from using your own disinfectant in the exhibition area to avoid damaging the objects and display cases.

If possible, pay at the ticket counter, in the café, and in the shop without using cash. EC cards and all common credit cards are accepted. Since the number of museum visitors is limited, please purchase an online ticket for a specific time slot before your visit.

Even if you are wearing a mask: please don't cough or sneeze into your hand. Use your elbow instead.

In order to use the interactive exhibits in the core exhibition, please use a touchpen, available free of cost in the museum foyer. The tactile museum maps and the few stations that can only be operated by hand are cleaned and disinfected several times each day.

Please note that tickets for events are only available in our ticket shop.
When attending an event, plan to arrive early; due to the usual security measures and the new hygiene measures, it may take longer to enter.

To ensure your and our safety during your group visit, we ask you to observe the following measures for groups:

  • Each group has a 15-minute time slot before the program starts to enter the museum. Please arrive at the museum on time
  • Please bring your own headphones
  • Please inform us of the size of your group when you enter the museum
  • Group visits are initially only possible from Monday to Friday with starting times between 10 am and midday
  • To optimize the likelihood of receiving your desired slot, we recommend registering four to six weeks in advance

Please don't come to the museum if you feel sick or have symptoms of a cold.

Our museum has raised the bar not only with its exhibitions, but also with its architecture. The museum building by Daniel Libeskind reflects the history of Jewish culture in Germany and provides a striking counterpoint to the adjoining baroque Old Building. In addition to exhibition spaces, the latter offers various rooms and options for all types of events, from exclusive receptions to gala dinners for hundreds of guests in our glass-enclosed courtyard.
