Questions and Answers on reopening

We are looking forward to your visit!

1.) When will Universum® Bremen open again?

Universum® Bremen has been reopened. You need a proof of vaccination, recovery or test to visit our house (unless you are younger than 14 years of age).

2.) What are the opening times?

Tuesday to Sunday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Holidays: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

3.) Does the 3G rule apply to Universum® Bremen?

The so-called ‘3G rule’ (geimpft, genesen, gestestet – vaccinated, recovered, tested) also applies to Universum® Bremen. Only tested, recovered or vaccinated guests are allowed to enter our house. Children up to the age of 14 and schoolchildren who are regularly tested within the framework of the mandatory school protection concept are excluded.

4.) Do visitors have to wear a face mask?
Please bring your own face mask for your visit. For safety reasons, all visitors are required to wear a medical face mask (FFP2 or surgical mask) while visiting the exhibition (exceptions: children under 6 and people who cannot wear a face mask for health reasons. Children aged 6 – 14 years are allowed to wear a cloth mask.) If you don’t own a face mask, you may purchase one from our supply.

5.) Do visitors have to show a negative Covid-19 test?

You need a proof of vaccination, recovery or test to visit our house (unless you are younger than 14 years of age). We would like to recommend an appointment at the Covid-19 test centre in our immediate vicinity before your visit.

6.) What safety precautions have been taken?
Just like the visitors, our employees will also wear medical face masks in the exhibition. Our staff has also been trained to comply with the new guidelines put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We ask our visitors to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from others and to cough and sneeze into a tissue or the crook of their elbow.

We have also installed disinfectant dispensers on each floor and additional disinfectants at various stations and exhibits.

Like in other places, only a limited number of people is allowed in the Universum® exhibition at any given time (see question 6). Exhibits with special challenges (see question 8) are currently not accessible. Our ventilation system has been adjusted in accordance with the guidelines.

You need to register your entry using the Luca-App, the Corona-Warn-App or a paper form.

7.) What is the maximum number of visitors allowed into the exhibition?
We must ensure that only a limited number of visitors are in Universum® at any given time. The maximum number of visitors is based on the overall size of the exhibition area. How large a group of visitors is allowed to be depends on the size of the household and the adapted guidelines issued by the senate of Bremen. Due to these regulations, visitors may have to wait to enter. We apologise for any inconvenience.

8.) How do I buy tickets and enter the exhibition?
Tickets can be purchased in advance from our online shop. This also applies to holders of annual passes. Your timed entry slot is valid for 45 minutes (for example: timed entry booked for 11 a.m., admission possible until 11.45 a.m.).

Good-evening tickets (valid 1,5 h before closing time) must also be purchased in advance online.

9.) Are all exhibitions accessible?
The majority of our exhibitions continue to be accessible to our visitors.

  • Stations that are explored using your eyes, nose, or mouth are temporarily closed for safety reasons.
  • Exhibitions that can be explored by multiple people can only be used by members from one household at the same time.

All visitors will be given a touch pen so they do not need to touch the screens at the stations with their fingers.

10.) Is the outdoor area open?
At the moment, the outdoor area is open for free. Some exhibitions are closed for safety reasons.

11.) What will happen with annual and daily passes?
Holders of annual and daily passes will automatically receive an extension on the validity of their tickets equal to the period during which we were closed. No action is needed to receive this extension.

12.) Are the restaurants open?
The restaurants – both the KUBUS restaurant in the building for special exhibitions and the Café Jonas in our building for permanent exhibitions – are open. Please note the opening times on the information sights. Please keep in mind that the opening times can deviate on daily basis due to the current situation. You do need any proof of vaccination, recovery or test to visit our restaurants! This rule does not apply to children under 14 years of age.

In addition, you need to register you entry the restaurant using the Luca-app or a paper form.

13.) Is the shop open?
Our shop is open. We will of course ensure that the number of people in the shop is restricted to comply with regulations. The opening times may differ from those in the rest of the building.

14.) Will science shows continue to take place?
For the time being, no science shows will take place.

15.) Can children’s birthday parties be booked?
You can book the Water and Researcher’s Party once again. For more information, visit the page about birthday parties.

Currently, we do not know when the next talk can take place at Universum®.

17.) When can events in the dark (café and dinners) be held?
Here, too, we do not currently know when we can hold our events in the dark. No date has been set for when they can resume.
