Dear visitors,

we are pleased to welcome you back to the Museum Barberini.

Your health and that of the staff of the Museum Barberini remain our highest priority. In order to make your visit as pleasant, but also as safe, as possible we have developed comprehensive safety and hygiene measures, which have been carefully coordinated with the relevant authorities of the state of Brandenburg and the city of Potsdam. The preventive measures for infection protection include a reduction of the number of visitors and the regulation of admission times with timeslot tickets, which are only available online, optimized visitor guidance throughout the museum as well as the increased disinfection of sensitive areas.

Despite the necessary safety measures, we wish you an inspiring encounter with the works of Impressionism of the Hasso Plattner Collection. Stay healthy!

Tickets
Please understand that we currently can only offer a strictly limited number of tickets and that we make the tickets available online daily for up to 21 days in advance. Tickets for the current exhibitions are currently available – including to Barberini Friends or visitors who are entitled to free admission upon verification – online only by booking a timeslot.
By purchasing an online ticket, you book a fixed timeslot for your entry to the museum. In this manner, you help us better regulate the admission of all visitors. If you are entitled to free admission via a membership or upon verification, you can reserve a zero-euro ticket for your visit in our online shop free of charge.

Visiting the Museum
For everyone’s benefit, please visit the Museum Barberini only if you feel healthy. Due to the regulations pertaining to the handling of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 in Brandenburg, we are obliged to document your first and last names, telephone number and e-mail address in a list of attendance for the purpose of contact tracking. The Museum Barberini retains the lists of attendance for a period of four weeks in compliance with data-protection regulations and destroys them after the retention period ends.

In the museum, we ask you to observe the distancing rule of at least 1.5 meters, to use a mouth-nose covering and to follow the hygiene rules as signposted. If you do not have a mask, you can buy a disposable mask at the museum’s cash desk. Our supervisors ensure that there are only as many people in the individual exhibition rooms as necessary to maintain distancing as required.

Lockers and audio guide rental devices are currently not available. Please drop off your jackets and bags at our wardrobe and use the free Barberini app on your own smartphone for an audio tour. The museum shop and the museum café are open. Please pay attention to the prescribed hygiene measures there as well.

If you have any questions about your museum visit, feel free to contact our visitor service: 0331 236 014 -499 (Monday to Friday 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 3 pm).

On the road with the Barberini App

Explore Potsdam!

The exhibition Baroque Pathways at the Museum Barberini invited you to explore Italian influences in Potsdam’s cityscape. Stroll through the city with the audio tour Italy in Potsdam and discover 30 Italianate buildings and artworks, from the Nikolaikirche (St. Nicholas Church)—modeled on St. Peter’s in Rome—and the Brandenburg Gate, which was inspired by the Arch of Constantine, to the Orangery Palace in Sanssouci, whose architecture unmistakably mirrors the Villa Medici in Rome. The city tour, available in German, English and Italian, will accompany you through the city and reveal surprising visual comparisons between Potsdam and Italy.

Barberini Digital encompasses all the museum’s digital projects: From the Barberini Guide to the virtual education in the museum.

Your Visit › House Rules

Visitor Information

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Museum Barberini. The museum is responsible for preserving unique works of art for future generations. At the same time we would like to make your visit to the museum as pleasant as possible. We therefore ask that you adhere to several rules. Our supervisory staff is in charge of ensuring that these rules are followed. Please follow the instructions of our staff when politely requested to respect our security measures or when asked to abide by these rules.

If you have any questions, please contact the Barberini team

info@museum-barberini.com, T +49 331 236014-499

  • All interior and exterior spaces are equipped with surveillance cameras to protect the valuable works of art.

  • We are pleased if you are interested in the details of artworks on exhibit. However, in order to protect valuable paintings, we ask that you keep a distance of one arm’s length to the objects on display.

    The lines on the floor mark the safe distance to the exhibits. If you cross this line, a security alarm will sound.

  • Backpacks and large bags (larger than DIN A4) present a security risk. Please store them in the lockers on the lower floor. Please do not take umbrellas, canes, and similar objects with you into the exhibition galleries. Walkers may be used in the galleries. Larger items of clothing may not be worn over the arm, wet clothing places a strain on the carefully controlled indoor climate in the galleries and should also be checked or stored. Smaller garments may be wrapped around the waist. We assume no liability for items left in the storage lockers and the coat room.
