Since Monday, 13 September, a COVID certificate will be required for persons aged 16 and over to access indoor areas of cultural and leisure facilities (among others museums). These are the decisions taken by the Federal Council at its meeting on 8 September. The extended certificate requirement is for a limited period until 24 January 2022. The Federal Council can also lift the measure earlier if the situation in hospitals eases.

IMPORTANT: Please check the museum website directly before your planned visit to find out about the visiting arrangements and opening hours.

Based on the guidelines of the BAG, the Association of Museums in Switzerland has developed a protection concept. This is intended to provide orientation for museums to work out their individual protection concepts.
