Dear visitors to the museum,

We look forward to June 16 when we can once again welcome you to our museum! At first, we are only opening the Ladestraße section (without Science Center Spectrum) that houses the road transport and "The Network: People, Cables, Data Streams" exhibitions. The main building and the Spectrum will remain closed for the time being.

Please note that only a limited number of 200 visitors may be in the museum at any one time. This may result in waiting times. The Ladestraße section of the museum is accessed via Möckernstraße 26, at the corner of Tempelhofer Ufer.

Reduced price during the partial opening

During the partial opening of the Ladestraße section the admission price is only € 4, reduced rate € 2. Information regarding eligibility for reduced rates or free admission can be found here.

Joining forces against Corona: Do your part!

In order to best protect you and our employees we have implemented extensive protection and hygiene regulations. In this way we can work together to stem the spread of the virus. Join the effort!

Protection and Hygiene Regulations

  • A nose and mouth mask is required for all adults and children aged 6 and older entering the exhibition.
  • Please remain at home if you are feeling ill.
  • Please keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters between you and other people. If a waiting line develops in front of the entrance, please make sure that this minimum distance is maintained here as well.
  • Please only visit the exhibitions on your own, in pairs or with members of your own household. 
  • Group visits (10 people or more) are not allowed. Please also avoid the formation of groups.
  • Cough or sneeze in the crook of your arm or into a handkerchief and keep your hands away from your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  • Avoid making contact with people (for example shaking hands, hugging).
  • We sanitize our information boards, displays and other surfaces several times a day. Please be sure to regularly disinfect your hands at the disinfection stations found at the entrance and in the exhibition areas or wash your hands thoroughly (at least 20-30 seconds) with soap and water.
  • The toilet facilities can only be visited by a single person or members of a household (small children and persons in need of help who are dependent on an escort are exempted).
  • Please pay attention to our signs and floor markings displaying texts and images that explain and illustrate the required rules on social distancing and hygiene.


  • For your protection, we have arranged the passageways through the exhibitions in such a way that streams of visitors will not cross each other in narrow places. Please pay attention to the corresponding signs.
  • Some hands-on stations and display elements that have to come close to the face (for example headphones, VR headsets) have been taken out of service for your protection.
  • Tactile objects for blind and partially sighted persons in the exhibition "The Network" can unfortunately not be used.
  • A few small, self-contained exhibition units that cannot be viewed without violating the minimum distance requirement can either only be entered individually or will simply be closed for the time being. We have expanded our digital program as an offset.
  • Unfortunately, group visits and group programs (guided tours, workshops, children's birthdays) are not possible until further notice. Individual guided tours are also currently unavailable.
  • The museum’s "Tor 25" bistro remains closed for the time being. The museum’s "TorEins" café at the end of the Ladestraße is open Tuesday-Friday (from 11 am until 8 pm) and on weekends (from 12 am until 8 pm).
  • The cloakroom also remains closed. There are, however, a limited number of lockers available for your use.

For your own protection and the protection of your fellow human beings we ask that you observe the regulations.

We look forward to your visit!
