Only accredited guides, interpreters, lecturers and teachers with their pupils are permitted to speak to groups in the museum, having produced currently valid professional identification at the ticket desk.

The group leader produces confirmation of the reservation at the ticket desk and pays for the number of participants. Participants can leave personal effects in the cloakroom. Plan for your group’s arrival fifteen minutes in advance due to the security check (X-ray control of personal effects) and equipping participants with audiophones. 

  • Payment

The group leader pays for admission on the day of the visit, in cash, by cheque or credit card.
Cancellations of reservations must be notified in writing to at least four days in advance, otherwise the reservation will be billed.
