Please note: at the present time, admission is only possible with online registration – this also applies to members.

Tickets are currently only available online with a fixed visit date. The ticket offices on site remain closed. Before your visit, please book a zero-euro ticket ("Free admission – only for holders of a valid membership card") in the ticket shop. Permitted accompanying persons do not need their own ticket. Please show the online ticket (either printed or on your mobile phone) at the entrance together with your valid membership card and photo ID.

More Knowledge

As a member, you will receive our special newsletter once a month. This contains the latest information on exhibitions, a selection of programme highlights and dates, museum news and information about membership.

All members also receive our museum magazine Kultur & Technik three times a year free of charge. This includes articles on current research and technical achievements, as well as historical background information and current questions on the social consequences of research and technology.

More for your money!

Annual membership is especially worthwhile for families: you can visit the museum as often as you wish throughout the year and bring another adult along, any of your own children (up to 18 years) and up to two other children as well!

Special offer: when you sign up for membership for the forthcoming year during the last three months of the current year and pay the annual fee immediately, you receive free admission from 1 October onwards – giving you an extra three months of membership for free!

Membership in more detail

Irrespective of the month in which your Deutsches Museum membership starts, the full annual membership fee is always due – we are not able to offer "pro rata" fees. Membership automatically runs for an unlimited number of calendar years (limitation possible for gift memberships). It can, however, be terminated in writing at any time, but no later than 31 October to the end of the calendar year.

More Fun

As a member, you can join exclusive guided tours at all of our branches: gain unique insights into the exhibitions with experts.

Even though the museum is open, protection against Covid-19 infection remains a top priority. Therefore, the member tours can only take place in a limited form and will be supplemented with online formats - click here for the programme.

We are always open virtually! On our YouTube channel we have special playlists of our virtual tours for members, such as the M.Com-Kaffeepause or the M.Com-Feierabendführung.
