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 on Thursday, 7 May 2020.


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 20 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. As in all museums, accompanying offers such as events and guided tours will be dispensed with until 30 June 2020.


From now on, guests are able to visit both the permanent archaeological exhibition and our special exhibitions. The successful exhibition “hot stuff – Archaeology of Everyday Life” will be extended until August 16, 2020. In addition, a new special exhibition will be on display for the reopening: The new series “City.Country.Photo.” by the City Museum Harburg launches with “Harburg Stories: The 1950ies“. More than 50 black-and-white photographs from the museum’s rich collections are on display here, providing a realistic and lively view of the decade in Hamburg’s south and coming from the estate of photo reporter Gerhard Beier (Harburger Anzeigen und Nachrichten).



We look forward to your visit!
