Important information

Dear Visitors,

From June 2, you do not need to book a timeslot or provide a negative corona test for your Marta visit. Wearing an FFP2 mask or at least a medical facemask is still mandatory. During this exceptional period, we’d like to make your stay as pleasant and safe as possible. Everything you need to know about your visit to Marta is summarized below.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Everyone visiting the museum must wear an FFP2 mask or at least a medical face covering. This rule does not apply to children up to school age. Exemptions are also made for people who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, but please make sure you notify Marta in advance and also send a photo of your exemption certificate by email to verwaltung@marta-herford.de for verification.

Visitors can disinfect their hands on entering the museum at the disinfection dispensers set up at the entrance and near the lockers. Additional dispensers are available in the restrooms. Frequently touched surfaces in the public areas are cleaned at regular intervals. Please maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters (5 feet) from other people. There are markings on the floor in waiting areas as a guide, and additional markings in areas where routes through the museum intersect. For your protection and ours, always observe coughing and sneezing etiquette and wash your hands regularly. Please only visit us if you feel fit and healthy.

There are separate entrance and exit doors in the foyer. All other building entrances and exits are kept locked. A one-way system is in place; please follow the guidance system inside the museum and the instructions of visitor service staff.
