Additional MUSEUM REGULATIONS “COVID-19”

In the interests of all our visitors and the safety of the museum exhibits, we ask you to observe the following rules:

  • Medical-grade face masks are compulsory as required by law. We are unfortunately obliged to refuse admission to visitors without a face mask covering their mouth and nose. This applies even on presentation of a medical certificate certifying that the person cannot wear/is exempt from wearing a face mask.
  • A minimum distance of 1.50 metres must be observed between visitors, the supervisory staff and the cashiers. This applies for the entire duration of your stay in the museum.
  • People with cold symptoms/general, non-specific symptoms or respiratory symptoms of any severity are not allowed to enter the museum.
  • Visitors who have returned from countries for which are subject to quarantine on return, have had personal contact with returnees or any contact with an infected person are not permitted to enter the museum and the exhibition rooms.
  • The maximum number of visitors to the Veste Coburg is 400 persons throughout the entire exhibition area and 80 persons in the European Museum of Modern Glass.
  • Visitors must provide their contact information along with valid proof that they have recovered, have been vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19 before purchasing an admission ticket. This also applies to customers visiting the shop or the cafeteria who have not yet purchased an admission ticket. Exceptions apply to children/students.
  • The tour was redesigned as a one-way system with signs to avoid contact areas. The direction of travel is indicated in the large exhibition areas. Smaller exhibition areas have a limit to the number of visitors permitted. Exhibition rooms that are too small are closed. Warning signs are posted in narrow spaces. After visiting the final section of the exhibit in the carriage house, visitors are no longer led back through the building to the cloakroom. Instead, they exit outside via the courtyard. The artillery exhibit was also redesigned as a one-way system; the emergency exit is now used as the regular exit.
