Due to the incidence value of over 35, people who have not been vaccinated or who have recovered must present a negative test certificate (max. 48 hours old) at the museum entrance (“3G rule”). Visiting the museum is only permitted with an FFP2 mask or at least a medical mask. This regulation does not apply to children up to school entry and people who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons. This must be registered with Marta in advance for the visit, and the certificate sent as a photo to the address for verification.

For your own safety and for the solidarity of the community, the guaranteed simple traceability in the event that an infection chain is traced is recommended to every visitor to the exhibition. It is therefore possible to register using the Corona app or the Luca app using a QR code at the entrance or to leave the contact details on a slip of paper on site. The data collected on site will be completely destroyed in compliance with data protection regulations after a period of 4 weeks.

We would like to ask all visitors to comply with the known distance and hygiene regulations.

The kupferbar in Marta will remain closed for the time being.


Opening hours:

Tue – Sund and public holidays from 11 am to 6 pm
Closed on 24/25/31 December and on Good Friday, open on New Year’s Day from 1 pm
