The Porsche Museum opens again

Next Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the Porsche Museum will open its doors again. In order to stem the spread of the coronavirus, the museum has been closed to the public for eight weeks since March 14.

The restart of museum operations will be in line with the requirements of the German Federal Government and the State of Baden-Württemberg for protection against infection with the coronavirus. This includes, for example, a new guidance system in the entire building to ensure a minimum distance of 5 feet between visitors.

"We will also provide face masks and disinfectants," adds Achim Stejskal, Head of Heritage and Porsche Museum. "We carry out regular occupational safety training for staff relating to hygiene and conduct recommendations." Throughout the museum building, the number of visitors is limited by a controlled entrance. The opening hours remain unchanged – Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 am to 6 pm. Museum tours and educational programs cannot be offered at the moment. Refreshment areas will also remain closed. "We are extending the validity of annual tickets by two months, the duration of the museum closure during the Corona crisis,” announced Stejskal.

During the closure, the Porsche Museum moved ahead with maintenance and renovations that had been planned to take place later this year. Thus, a start was made on the conceptual reorientation of the entrance to the permanent exhibition, the so-called "Prologue,” which presents the early days of the company up to 1948. Due to this still ongoing renovation work, the admission price is temporarily reduced by half.

More information about current measures, as well as the successive restart of the visitor programs, which are fully aligned with the official requirements, can be found on the website www.porsche.com/museum.
