Tips and Service Inofrmation

  • Buying a Ticket

    Regular admission costs €14 for adults. Is an annual pass perhaps worth it? At 32 € for students or 72 € for private individuals (including an accompanying person and the whole family), this might be interesting for you. Tickets are currently only available online. You can find all the information on the Admission and Tickets page.

    Time Factor

    When to come?
    If you can arrange it, come during the week. Good to know: During the Bavarian school holidays, the Deutsches Museum is usually very busy, especially in case of bad weather. At the moment we have strict regulations on the number of visitors allowed in the museum at any one time. A visit is usually relaxed under the current regulations.

    And how much time should you allow?
    Two hours fly by. After all, we are one of the largest museums in Germany. If you're good on foot, you'll be happy to cover a few kilometres here - from the mine deep in the basement to the Sundial Garden or the Planetarium Terraces on Level 6. Many guests also spend a whole day in the museum.
