The museum’s doors are closed but this doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss the exhibition Monet: Places. With the Barberini Live Tour you can go on a virtual visit led by an experienced guide of the museum.

Jasper Johns: The 100 Monotypes
Barberini Digital: Online Resources For Home
We are delighted to have reopened the Museum Barberini again on Wednesday, May 6, 2020. We hope that despite the necessary protective measures your exhibition visit will be enjoyable, and you will feel inspired by the works of Claude Monet. Unfortunately, due to the necessary safety measures, the number of tickets is very limited. For all those who cannot travel to Potsdam due to travel restrictions, we are continuing our online program.
Only time slots are available for the current exhibition. Tickets are bound to a certain day and time and are only valid for this period. With this measure we can ensure an optimal flow of visitors and keep waiting times to a minimum. Please understand that we can currently only offer a very limited number of tickets and that tickets can only be booked online for ten days in advance.
If the tickets are temporarily sold out, please be patient. We regularly activate new contingents - always on weekdays in the morning. Tickets for a visit to the museum purchased before April 2020 remain valid.
Museum Information for Visitors
The safety of the visitors and staff of the Barberini Museum is still the top priority. In order to make your visit to the exhibition possible even during the Corona pandemic, we have a number of protective measures. These follow the official regulations. For example, the number of visitors to the museum is currently limited to only a third of the number of people otherwise present. A sign-posted tour through the museum will help you to abide by the 1.5-meter social distancing rule. We ask you to follow the hygiene rules described on the information boards in the museum and wear a mask at all times. Lockers and audio guide devices will not be available. A cloakroom is provided. For an audio tour please use the free Barberini app on your own smartphone. The Barberini Shop is open on the ground floor and you will find the Barberini Café and Restaurant in the pavilion in the museum courtyard. Group bookings are currently not possible. We will regularly inform you about changes to the guided tour offer on our website. The digital offer is constantly being expanded.
Barberini Friends/Season ticket holders
To ensure the necessary protective measures all exhibition visits have to be pre-booked online. You can book a slot for your visit online free of charge. Please bring your booking, your season ticket, and a piece of picture ID with you.
Due to the closure of the museum in March and April and the future entry regulations the validity of current Barberini Friends season tickets will automatically be extended by 3 months. The sale of season tickets is suspended until further notice.
