QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
FACE MASKS MANDATORY
In order to make the visit to the exhibitions safe for our visitors and employees during the corona pandemic, the SCHIRN has developed comprehensive protection and hygiene measures in consultation with the responsible authorities. This also includes protection in form of a mask covering your mouth and nose or a face visor, also for children from the age of 6. If you don't have a mask, you can buy a disposable mask at the SCHIRN cash desk.
Hygiene and conduct rules
In order to ensure that exhibition visits remain safe during the Corona pandemic, the number of visitors will be greatly reduced for the time being. Waiting times may occur with high visitor numbers. We ask for your understanding. We kindly ask you to keep the required distance of at least 1.5 metres to other visitors and to the SCHIRN staff. The minimum distance is guaranteed by a new guidance system. Protection is increased by wearing mouth-nose protection in the SCHIRN. If you do not have a mask with you, you can buy a disposable mask at the SCHIRN cash desk. Furthermore, the coughing and sneezing label (it is better to sneeze into the crook of your arm) and regular hand washing are also valid. Additionally, disinfectant dispensers are available in the foyer and in the toilets. For the benefit of all, please only visit the SCHIRN if you feel healthy. Acutely ill persons must refrain from visiting the SCHIRN.
The MINISCHIRN remains closed until further notice. We continue to offer an exciting program for children online: are are you already familiar with the new MINISCHIRNIS videos?
If you have further questions, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Situated between the Frankfurt cathedral and the renowned Römer square, right in the heart of downtown Frankfurt, adjacent to the reconstructed "new old town" and just a few steps from the River Main, the SCHIRN is easily reached by public transport. And there are a whole host of sightseeing attractions and versatile hospitality offerings in the museum’s direct neighborhood.

The WIFI GUIDE can be accessed by visitors in German and English on their own smartphone or tablet free in the SCHIRN WIFI.
