Measures for a safe visit

  • Use of face masks is mandatory in the indoor exhibitions when 1 meter distance cannot be maintained. It is therefore important that all visitors have a face mask available during their visit. Children under the age of 12 year and people that for medical reasons cannot wear a face mask are exempt from this requirement.
  • Visitors must at all times keep at least 1 meter distance from other people. 
  • Hand sanitizer is available at several locations at the museum. Please use them when encountered.
  • The wardrobes are closed. We encourage you to bring only small bags. 
  • Persons arriving in groups should maintain gathered throughout their visit. 
  • Visitors bringing small children are advised to use baby carriers if possible. 
  • We prefer the use of contactless payment in the museum store. 
  • We have reduced the number people that can visit the zoological and geological exhibitions simultaneously. This also applies for the museum store. 
  • We have removed several points of contact in the museum. 
  • The interactive parts of the The Climate House exhibitions are frequently cleaned.
