Since May the 7th, the Archaeological Museum Hamburg and the City Museum Harburg are open again


Together with the other state-run museums and exihibition houses, the Archaeological Museum Hamburg and the City Museum Harburg has reopened its doors to vistors after the more than seven-week-closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


In order to ensure a safe visit to the museum in terms of health protection, the visit to the museums can only take place under the applicable hygiene and social distancing regulations of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Therefore, with the resumption of public operation, the number of persons visiting the premises of the houses at the same time is limited (1 person per 4 sqm). Visitors are also encouraged to keep a safety distance of 1.5 meters to each other. In addition, it is highly recommended to wear mouth-nose-protection while visiting the museum. Such a mask, manufactured by “Elbe-Werkstätten“, can be purchased in the museum shops at cost price. The normal opening hours and entrance fees of the museum apply. You will find information about the current regulations for visiting the museum here.


The museum shops at the Archaeological Museum Hamburg and City Museum Harburg as well as the library are also reopened. At the moment only small and closed groups can book guided tours and workshops at the museum via the Museumsdienst HamburgThe are no open guided tours for individual visitors. First lectures will be held in the Helms-Saal. But even here only a restricted number of people will have access.




We look forward to your visit!
