Due to staff shortages, the light railroad is currently operating only irregularly.
Tickets can be purchased on site at the box office or online.
Dogs are only allowed in the museum for blind and visually impaired visitors. Lockers for bags and jackets are available on the ground floor. We also offer a cloakroom at weekends during the winter months. For fire safety reasons, strollers are not allowed in the KIBALA. You will find a parking space for strollers on the 2nd floor or in the cloakroom area on the ground floor. Many areas of the museum are difficult to access with strollers. We therefore recommend that you leave them in the cloakroom. Please also note that handcarts may not be taken into the exhibitions.

We reserve the right to close the Children's Railway Land KIBALA in case of persistent heat for the safety of all visitors.
