Please present certificate and ID at the desk.

Guided tours for groups are again possible by appointment.

Guided tour à la Corona

Up to a group size of 15 people, guided tours take place live in the museum.

For groups of 16 or more, you can enjoy an exciting guided tour in the Anatomical Lecture Hall, initially virtually, but still with a guide as he lives and breathes. You can sit back and relax, feel like a student, take a good look at each exhibit and follow the guide's explanations loud and clear, quenching your thirst for knowledge with questions.

Afterwards, you can experience all the exhibits on display again live on your own during a tour of the museum.”


Dear Museum Visitors,

We are pleased to welcome you back to our museum. Both the permanent and the special exhibition are accessible for the most part. The museum is cleaned regularly, and the guided tours are designed in such a way that visitors hardly have to cross each other. A supervisor will be happy to help with any questions.

Unfortunately, payment by credit card is still not possible here!

Here are the most important rules of conduct to protect you and our staff.

As a general rule, persons over 16 years of age are required to have 3 G certification

  • Please keep a safe distance of 2 m to the next visitor
  • At the beginning, please follow hand hygiene (dispensers are available), remember the general safety rules (information board) and pay attention to the floor and wall markings.
  • We ask you kindly to bring your own personal mask (this applies especially to risk groups, the museum cannot provide protective masks).


Guided tours and workshops for school classes and other groups are now available again. Please enquire with us by
