Are prams allowed in the museum?

For safety reasons, prams are not permitted in the exhibition rooms. Please ask our employees if you need a suitable place to leave your pram, sports equipment or toys.

Are dogs allowed into the museum?

Feel free to bring your small four-legged friends into the museum garden with you. If they are not too heavy for you, you can carry them through the exhibitions. Unfortunately, four-legged companions are not allowed to walk through the exhibitions on their own.

Thank you for your understanding!
