We are open!

Our exhibitions are open Wednesday to Sunday. All information for your visit can be found here.

The 2G rule currently applies to visits to exhibitions. For eventsguided tours and workshops, 2G+ applies. The proof must be carried on the basis of a QR code via app or in paper form; the yellow vaccination card alone is no longer sufficient. In addition, visitors need an official identification document (identity card or passport) for verification.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

ZKM international

ZKM puts on countless touring exhibitions all over the world. For many years, they have been organized in close collaboration with the Goethe-Institute. Innovative exhibition formats have been developed, generating enthusiasm worldwide. 


Education & Mediation
Museum communication is interdisciplinary, cross-media and participatory!
  • Our formats, which return regularly, appeal to a wide range of interests.
  • A day at ZKM means immersion in an entire cosmos of analogue and digital worlds.
