Due to current developments concerning the spread of the coronavirus, the German Maritime Museum / Leibniz Institute of Maritime History cannot be visited since Sunday, 15 March, until further notice. Also the walk-in ships in the outside area are not available for visits.

Already on Friday, 13 March, the museum had cancelled all events, lectures and children's birthday parties in the building and the Virtual Reality glasses in the exhibition 360° POLARSTERN were taken out of service. "In the current situation, it is important that we all do our part to slow down the spread of the virus," says Prof. Dr. Sunhild Kleingärtner, Managing Director of the German Maritime Museum. "We take the situation very seriously and have therefore now decided, following an internal assessment of the situation, to extend our preventive health protection measures to the entire public museum operation. We regret that our house is not available for visits for the time being, but the protection of our museum guests and our employees has priority".

If you have already made an appointment for an individual tour or a children's birthday party, you can change or cancel it free of charge.
