Safe premises and safe place

The National Museum aims to provide physically and mentally safe places for our museum visitors and staff during both regular and unprecedented times.

We also ensure that visitors are able to keep safe distance from other visitors and our staff members.

Museum guests are offered the opportunity to sanitize their hands, especially near the entrances and at ticket counters, but also at other points. Some of the National Museum’s touchscreens might not be in use for the time being. The content of audio tours is always available for listening through your own mobile phone device, so we recommend bringing headphones with you.

Online ticket sales

Entrance tickets to the National Museum are available for purchase in advance from the online shop. Tickets can be purchased well in advance or even on the same day. A maximum of nine tickets may be purchased in one go. Museum Card holders and others who are entitled to free entry may reserve their entry slot in advance.

Ticket prices are cheaper in the online shop than when purchased from the museum. Purchasing a ticket does not require registration. Click here to purchase entrance tickets online.
