Dear visitors: Our exhibition will be open again from March 16, 2021. This also applies to our library. Due to the requirements of the current regulations of the state government and the city of Heidelberg regarding the Coronavirus, the visit is subject to restrictions depending on the 7-days incidence in Heidelberg. The following requirements apply:

  • If the 7-days incidence is below 50, the visit to the exhibition is possible without prior notification under the applicable hygiene regulations (see below).
  • If the 7-days incidence is above 50, the visit of the exhibition is only possible after pre-registration under the email address The rules on masking, spacing, and contact tracing also apply here. Please note that in order to channel registrations, the requested visit to the exhibition is only possible after a confirmation by us (via email). We recommend registration at least 24 hours before visiting. Please provide a phone number and the number of visitors when booking.
  • If the 7-days incidence exceeds 100, our exhibition will be closed. Reopening is only possible if the incidence remains below 100 for five consecutive days.

Please check the City of Heidelberg website for the current 7-days incidence and associated restrictions prior to your visit.
