Historical Museum of the Palatinate

Corona Information


We are delighted to be able to welcome you back to the Historical Museum of the Palatinate and ask you to observe our current health and safety regulations.
The exhibition “Medicus: The Power of Knowledge” and the family show “The Gruffalo: The Exhibition” are open.
The exhibited collections must remain closed for the time being.
The Medicus exhibition and the Gruffalo exhibition have been extensively redesigned to comply with the current health and safety regulations.
A special wayfinding system guides visitors through our museum with a minimum of contact. Visitors are required to wear a face mask or covering and to keep a safe distance apart until further notice.
Potential limits on the number of visitors may result in waits on short notice. You should expect waits on weekends and holidays and during school vacation season, especially between 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Since the legal capacity limit in exhibitions prevents us from being able to guarantee immediate admission even if you have already purchased a ticket online, we only still sell admission tickets for weekends and holidays at the admissions desk. Please plan possible waits into your trip to the museum.
We ask you to try not to spend more than 90 minutes in the exhibitions to shorten waits and enable us to continue admitting visitors smoothly without having to assign times. Many thanks!
You can complete the Corona contact data collection form at the museum or before your visit. The form for individual visitors is available here and the form for groups here.
Online admission tickets for Tuesday through Friday (except for holidays and school vacation days) are available here.
Should you have any questions about visiting the museum or want to book a guided tour, contact the exhibition office by sending an email to ausstellungsbü
