FAQ on protective measures to help contain COVID-19
Are there any visitation restrictions?
Individuals who have had contact with a person infected with COVID-19 within the preceding 14 days are not permitted to visit due to the currently valid regulations, nor are individuals who feel ill. Wherever possible, a distance of 1.5 m from other visitors must be maintained. Please avoid lingering in front of specific artworks for too long if you notice others behind waiting to get closer. We ask you to be keenly aware of other visitors queuing and clustering, especially at the ticket counters, information desks, or restrooms.
Do I need to bring my own mask?
During your stay at the museums, it is mandatory to wear a FFP2 mask. For children and adolescents from 6 to 15 years inclusive the wearing of a medical mask is permitted. Children under the age of six are exempt from the requirement to wear a mask.
What do 2G plus regulations mean?
According to the current Infection protection act, admission can only be granted if official written or electronic proof can be provided of:
- a complete Corona vaccination plus current test certificate (PCR or antigen)
- or recovery plus test certificate (PCR or antigen)
- booster vaccination without test detection
- or recovery after complete vaccination without test detection
PCR tests (maximum 48 hours old) or antigen tests (maximum 24 hours old) are accepted as negative test evidence. Information on the "Test Centre in the Kunstareal" can be found below. Persons with booster vaccination (from the day of booster vaccination) as well as persons who had an infection (max. 90 days ago) after complete immunisation are exempt from compulsory testing.
Children under 14 years are exempt from the 2G plus regulation.
Where can I get tested before my visit to the museum?
From 28.12.21 you can have a rapid antigen test at the test centre in the Kunstareal www.kunstareal-tests.de. The test centre is located at the south-eastern tip of the Pinakothek der Moderne, on the corner of Gabelsbergerstrasse and Türkenstrasse.
Please reserve a test appointment. The test centre is daily open from 8.00 am - 6.00 pm (Monday until Sunday). The test result is transmitted around 15 minutes after leaving the test centre; in the meantime, every museum in the Kunstareal can be easily reached on foot. If desired, the test certificate can also be printed out on site.
Are any additional hygiene measures in place?
The cleaning intervals have been increased at the museum. Contact surfaces have been reduced to a bare minimum.
