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.

Tickets

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.

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.

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.
