Dogs must be kept under control in line with regulations and place such that all entrances and exits can be used without hindrance.

For people with physical disabilities, the lift and stairlift currently provide step-free access to most exhibitions and the cloakroom and toilet areas, with the exception of the ground floor of the Talamt building and the Gothic vaults. Due to construction work, these areas are expected to be closed to visitors in general until March 2020. Part of the construction work includes the installation of a lift in the historical walls to ensure that all exhibition areas are fully accessible. Once the construction work is complete, this lift will enable all visitors to view the exhibits on the basement of the Talamt building and in the Gothic vaults, without exception. This will mean that our permanent exhibition on the Middle Ages and the early modern age will also be step-free, as will the future State Numismatics Collection.

A wheelchair is available at the museum ticket office.
