Our exhibitions are open Wednesday to Sunday.

Dear visitors,

Due to the continuing very high number of infections, the ZKM, in coordination with other museums in Baden-Württemberg, continues to require visitors to wear a mask (OP or FFP2 mask).

This measure serves to protect you as well as the ZKM staff.

We thank you for your understanding!

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.
