Hygiene issues

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, advance registration is required. 
During your visit, please keep your distance and wear a medical face mask. The City of Hamburg’s current Covid-19 protection measures apply.

Accessibility

To make your visit to the exhibition as barrier free as possible, we have put the following information and services together:

  • There is a disabled parking bay in the street Kattrepel close to the exhibition.
  • The exhibition rooms are on the ground floor. The main entrance and the complete route through the exhibition are barrier free for wheelchair users and those with walking difficulties.
  • A wheelchair-accessible WC is available. There is also a changing table there.
  • Folding stools may be borrowed and there is other seating available.
  • The whole exhibition is in German and English.
  • All videos and audio recordings have subtitles; the headphones are designed to be induction-compatible for hearing aids.
  • All texts are easily legible as far as size and strong colour contrast are concerned.
  • At the exhibition welcome desk you can borrow a tactile exhibition plan that contains the central texts in Braille and in large print.
  • The “Bei Anruf Kultur” format is geared specifically to our blind and partially-sighted visitors.

In the medium term we are planning special guided tours for the blind and partially sighted that will provide tactile access to our three-dimensional exhibits. We have already gained experience with tours for the deaf or hard of hearing in the course of our photographic exhibition “100 years in 100 pictures”. We are also working on corresponding concepts for our permanent exhibition “Schmidt! Living democracy” and will soon announce these via the relevant channels and on our website.
