Currently, 2G-Plus applies to admission to museums in Bavaria.

Admission is only granted to those who can prove that they have been vaccinated or have recovered and have also been tested. A currently valid PCR test or a PoC antigen test (rapid test) is sufficient as proof of testing.
Proof of vaccination and testing is not required for children under 14 years of age.

The test obligation does not apply to visitors who have already been boosted for 15 days.

There is an obligation to wear a FFP2 mask. Children under the age of six are exempt from this requirement. Children and adolescents between their 6th and 16th birthday only have to wear a medical face mask.

The DB Museum in Nuremberg is open on the following public holidays:
6 January, Easter Monday, Ascension Day, Whit Monday, Corpus Christi, 3 October and 26 December. The DB Museum is closed on 1 January, Good Friday, 1 May, 1 November, 24, 25 and 31 December. The outdoor area is closed during the winter months (1 November to 31 March) except for special events.

The driving simulator in the Kinder-Bahnland (KIBALA) is currently not operational.

From Tuesday, 21 September until probably the end of the year, the playground on the open-air site will no longer be accessible due to construction work.

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.

Filming and photography for private use is permitted (no flash photography). Tripods may be used, provided you do not disturb or obstruct other visitors to the museum. Professional and commercial photography and filming of any kind is only permitted by prior arrangement and with written approval. Please contact us in good time and note that additional charges may apply.
