Naturhistorisches Museum - Das Gebäude von aussen

Reopening

Covid 19

We open our doors on Monday 1 March at 14.00 and look forward to your visit!

Updated 25.02.2021

The Federal Council has relaxed the measures to combat the pandemic: as of March, museums will be allowed to reopen in compliance with the protective measures. School visits are also permitted again. Kiosk operations and takeaways are permitted, but without indoor seating and, for the time being, not even on terraces. Guided tours, vernissages and events are still prohibited.

Our protective measures are based on federal and cantonal regulations and are continually adapted to current conditions:

Masks are compulsory in the entire building. Children up to their 12th birthday are exempt from this obligation during a regular visit to the museum. 

The current admission capacity is 350 guests. Especially in bad weather, there may be waiting times.

Due to the protective measures, some of the museum's offerings will be closed or not usable, including the Discovery Corner, the Geolab and the Discovery Suitcases. We thank you for your understanding. 

The cafeteria will also be offering drinks and food. The regulations of the authorities for catering establishments apply here.

School classes are subject to the rules of school operation and the museum's distance and hygiene measures apply to other visitors. We recommend dividing larger classes (15 or more students) and ask groups to visit the museum with sufficient chaperones. 

We place a high value on implementing the hygiene and distance measures. We also ask visitors to comply with the known rules of the FOPH. 

Please keep your distance from other visitors and stay at home if you feel ill. 

We thank you for following the instructions of our staff.
