We offer guided visits for individuals and groups. Guided visits are dialogue-based tours of an exhibition. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety measures recommended by the Robert Koch Institute (distance and hygiene rules) apply. Visitors are required to wear a face mask. If you are coming on your own or in a small group, why not simply join one of our public guided visits? Simply register at the Information Desk in the lobby. The visit with a larger group (15 persons or more) is possible again from September. Feel free to book a guided visit tailored to your needs with our Visitor Services.

There are several public guided visits in German each week of our permanent exhibition at the Haus der Geschichte and in the museum garden. As a rule, the guided visits run for 60 or 90 minutes. There’s no need to book in advance to take part in a public guided visit of one of the exhibitions at the Haus der Geschichte. Simply register on the day at the Information Desk in the lobby. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety measures recommended by the Robert Koch Institute (distance and hygiene rules) apply. Visitors are required to wear a face mask. Please note that the number of participants of a guided tour is currently limited to a maximum of 10 persons. You find a detailed schedule of the German guided visits here.
From September onwards, guided visits through our exhibitions can be booked free of charge for groups of 15 people or more. Please discuss the date, size of the group and your needs with Visitor Services. Tours generally last 90 minutes. If your group doesn’t speak German, we offer guided visits in Dutch, English, French, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish as well as German tours with an Arabic interpreter. We are happy to address any special needs. If you require an inclusive guided visit, simply contact our Visitor Services in advance.
