For your planning, we would like to inform you about the upcoming maintenance work, which in some cases will lead to short-term closures of exhibition areas. In April, additional maintenance work will be carried out in the stair halls, which will lead to changes in the routing. Your visit to the exhibition will not be affected.
From Monday, 20.02. to Friday, 12.05.2023, maintenance work will be carried out in different sections.
In the first phase, the foyer will be inaccessible from Mon, 20 Feb to Sat, 4 Mar. The Castle Cellar and the Warming Room will be accessible via Portal 3 and all other exhibitions via the Passage. Here you will also find the ticket counter, the information desk and the meeting points for guided tours.
Please note the alternative routing.
