Why can’t I touch the artworks?

Touching a work of art just once doesn’t seem like a big deal. But even clean hands leave deposits of grease that will damage the works over time. Please help us preserve the works for everyone to enjoy – both now and in the future!

We kindly request you not to eat, drink or breastfeed in the galleries. Quiet spots for breastfeeding can be found on the first floor and on the landings between the galleries. If in doubt, please ask our personnel.

Tip: Keep a safe distance between yourself and the artworks: at least 70 cm is recommended.

Photography is permitted in the museum.
