Important information

Dear Visitors,

We are delighted to announce that our museum will be reopening to the public on 19 May with changed opening times and an extended program. During this special time we want to ensure that your visit to the Marta is as safe and pleasant as possible. In the following we have summarized all important information on our “protection and hygiene concept” as well as the new measures within the framework of the reopening. Please take note that a visit to the museum is currently only possible subject to compliance with these measures.

We look forward to seeing you!
Your Marta team

The most important facts regarding the reopening

The museum is open to visitors from the 19th of May 2020 with new opening times including the evenings:

Tue – Fri from 2 pm to 8 pm
Sat from 11 am to 8 pm
Sundays and public holidays from 11 am to 6 pm

The kupferbar in the Marta will be open again from 19.05.2020 from 11.30 am to 9 pm. For further information on the opening times there and the applicable hygiene measures, please see the Facebook page. Reservations will be taken by the team around Moritz Weber at 05221- 58 94 77 0.

Access to the museum is only possible with appropriate mouth-nose covering (scarf, cloth, community mask or everyday mask). This rule does not apply to children who have not yet started school or to persons who for medical reasons are unable to wear mouth-nose covering. Visitors without a mask can purchase a disposable mask at the museum cash desk.

Visitors enter and leave the building exclusively via the respectively separated doors in the main entrance. All other entrances and exits will remain closed. An exception to this is the exit via the kupferbar; re-entering the museum is then only possible, however, through the main entrance. A guide system in the museum will ensure that direct, oncoming contact between visitors is avoided.

Admission tickets can be purchased at the museum cash desk. Card payment is preferred for all monetary transactions. The submission of your contact data before entering the exhibitions serves only for the possible tracking of infection transmission chains if necessary. This information will not be processed or stored by us, and will be deleted again 14 days after your visit.

The maximum number of persons allowed to be present simultaneously in the museum is separated into three areas as follows: in the Lobby area 20 persons, in the Gehry Galleries 70 persons, in the Lippold Gallery 15 persons.

All visitors can sanitize their hands after entering the museum at the sanitizer dispensers located in the entrance area and at the lockers. In addition, there are also dispensers in the toilets and in the Marta Atelier. Frequently touched surfaces in the public areas will be cleaned at regular intervals. Persons must maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from each other. In the waiting areas there are markings on the floor to facilitate this. There are also markings where paths cross to ensure proper distancing. For your protection and that of our staff we request absolute compliance with coughing and sneezing etiquette and regular hand washing. Please only visit the museum if you feel perfectly healthy.

The current exhibition “Navid Nuur – Hocus Focus” will be extended until 23.08.2020, and the exhibition “Glass and Concrete – Manifestations of the Impossible” until 04.10.2020. Please note that the extension of the exhibition durations will lead to changes in Marta’s annual program. Here you will find a current preview of the coming exhibitions.

Museum education programs in large groups will not be possible for the moment. With consideration of all the necessary precautionary measures, we will make initial attempts with imaginative mini workshops and creative labs in the Marta Atelier. Dates and further information can be found here.

Unfortunately, all events are cancelled until further notice. As soon as individual formats are made possible again in the course of easing the restrictions in public life we will inform you immediately.

The Marta-Shop is temporarily only available subject to restrictions. There is, however, a special sales area with the most popular articles in a surprising #weareback-edition.

Please note that there may still be delays in handling online orders in the Marta-Shop
