Archive, library, and museum will be accessible again


Archive, library, and museum will be reopened from Monday, 8 June 2020 at their usual opening hours. Due to the legal requirements (corona virus), the number of places in the reading room is limited and therefore confirmed registration is required:



Up to four persons at the same time are allowed to visit the Museum.


The safety is our top priority.
We kindly ask you to bring your own mouth and nose mask and wear it during your stay.
Hand disinfectants are available at our locations.
