HYGIENE RULES 

In accordance with Lower Saxony's current coronavirus regulations and the rules for running the museum, we ask you to observe the following hygiene rules for your own safety and ours:

  • When entering the museum it is necessary to wear a face mask, as the foyer is also the shop and sales area.
  • In the exhibition rooms (including walkways, such as the Museum Street, and the Calder Room), there is no obligation to wear masks unless you are participating in a guided tour or event.
  • However, we welcome the voluntary wearing of a face mask during your visit to the museum. Please have your mask ready, especially for situations where you cannot keep the distance of 1.5 m and for access to areas difficult to assess from outside, such as film rooms, toilets, etc. This way you protect yourself and others.
  • Please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m from other people as far as possible.
  • Due to the distance requirement, there may be delays in certain areas. Please follow the instructions of attendants.
  • Please wash your hands regularly and observe the coughing and sneezing etiquette: cough/sneeze into a paper handkerchief or into the crook of your arm and turn away from other people.
  • Make your payments cash-free if possible.
  • Visitors to events, e.g. introductory lectures, are required to wear face masks until they reach their seats.
  • Participants in guided tours are obliged to wear face masks for the duration of the tours.
  • If possible, please use the staircases and keep the lifts free for people with limited mobility. When using the elevators, please keep to the minimum distance of 1.5 m.
  • If you experience any signs of illness, please do not visit the museum.

We are grateful for your compliance and apologise for any inconvenience.
