Welcome to our FAQ!
What measures are being taken to contain COVID 19?
We take comprehensive protective and hygienic measures, in particular distance rules, wearing mouth and nose protection, protective equipment in the checkout areas as well as continued intensive cleaning and disinfection measures. The surfaces that can be touched, for example, are cleaned at regular intervals by our staff, and the VR glasses after each use. You can find detailed information here
WHAT MUST BE CONSIDERED IN RELATION TO THE MANDATORY TEST?
According to the current obligations of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, a corona test or proof of immunization is not obligated when visiting a museum, art exhibitions or similar institutions anymore.
IS A MASK REQUIRED?
Yes. If you are over 6 years old, please always wear a FFP2 mask or medical mouth and nose protection, also within the exhibition.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE MY TICKET ONLINE?
In order to contribute to the containment of the coronavirus, we have reduced the maximum capacity in the exhibition and therefore recommend that you purchase your ticket in advance from our partner Ticketmaster.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY TICKETS ON SITE?
If tickets are still available on your visit day, you can buy tickets at the box office. Please note that we prefer payment with an EC or credit card. However, if no more tickets are available online for your desired slot, it means that the maximum capacity has been reached and we can unfortunately no longer sell you tickets on site.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY BOOKED TICKET IF THE EXHIBITION IS CLOSE AGAIN?
Should the exhibition have to close again due to official requirements regarding the pandemic situation, purchased tickets will retain their validity and can be rebooked for a new date free of charge.
WHY ARE THERE TIME SLOTS?
As a contribution to the containment of the corona virus and to guarantee all visitors a great experience and a pleasant visit, it is split up into different time slots. Entrance is allowed every 10 minutes within the time slot you have booked. You should plan approximately 1 ½ hours for your visit, however, within our opening hours you may stay as long as you want to. You have missed your time slot? In this case we will try to have you enter the exhibition at a later time, provided that there is enough space. This is why we recommend to be there on time!
CAN I CHANGE MY SLOT AFTERWARDS?
When booking, please make sure that you have selected the correct date and time. A change afterwards is unfortunately no longer possible. Did you accidentally miss your time window? In this case we will try to let you in later, but only if there is enough space, so we recommend that you be on time!
ARE THERE REDUCTIONS FOR GROUPS?
We offer group tickets for 10 persons and more. They have to be ordered in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The exhibition is easy of access, also for wheel-chair users. Seriously disabled persons pay the full price, but with a “B”-authorization in their passport admission is free for the accompanying person.
