Skateboards, scooters, in-line skates and bicycles are not permitted. People under the influence of alcohol may be refused entry to the museum. Guests are liable for any damages caused as a result of their behavior. The obligation to reimburse costs also applies to the activation of the alarm system either as the result of intent or negligent conduct.

Coat check

There is a coat check with lockers at the entrance to the museum. The coat check is available during museum opening hours.
