All about your visit

    Current regulations, hygiene concept

    With a tried-and-tested hygiene concept, we do all that we can to ensure that our visitors and employees are as safe as possible.

    Information and recommendations since 3 April 2022:

    • The Ordinance for the Prevention and Control of Coronavirus for North Rhine-Westphalia has been adapted to the provisions of the German Act on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases. This significantly reduces the protective measures against the spread of coronavirus. The previous 3G (requiring people to provide evidence that they have been tested or vaccinated or have recently recovered from Covid-19) and access restrictions no longer apply and it is no longer compulsory to wear a mask indoors. Visitors no longer have to produce evidence of a vaccination, a negative test or a recent recovery.
    • The NRW state government expressly recommends people to continue wearing a mask indoors. Therefore, we urge our visitors aged 6 and over to continue to wear a mask in our closed museum rooms to protect everyone. Visitors aged 16 and over are recommended to wear an FFP2-mask.
    • We recommend that you continue to observe the 1.50m social-distancing rules. Please avoid forming groups.
    • Well-maintained sanitiser stations are available for your use.
    • The Deutsches Museum Bonn follows the provisions for the prevention of new infections laid down in the latest version of the Ordinance for the Prevention and Control of Coronavirus of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia: https://www.mags.nrw/coronavirus-rechtlicheregelungen-nrw
    • Please follow the instructions of our employees.

    Food and drink

    • In the entrance area, there is a vending machine for hot drinks, and one for cold drinks and snacks.
    • The Wissenschaftszentrum bistro is currently available Tues – Fri from 11.30. to 14.00 (Fri until 13.00).
    • Unfortunately, no birthday cakes or similar can be consumed in the museum during a child’s birthday party. There is unfortunately also no room available for this. However, there is the option of eating cake outside in the atrium. We will be happy to provide cushions to sit on.
