We look forward to welcoming you!

The pandemic is not over yet: For your own protection and out of consideration for others, we recommend that you wear a medical mask throughout the building. Masks are still compulsory for events in the Leopold Sonnemann Hall and in the workshops at the Young Museum, because the recommended minimum distance cannot be maintained there.

You can still buy tickets at our box offices, or buy them easily and comfortable in our online shop.

If you have any questions or need any help, please contact our trained staff on any level of the exhibition building.
