Online Ticketing

Dear friends and visitors of Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur

We are pleased that we can reopen our exhibitions for you at regular opening times as of May 11th. Please understand that we will not offer any tours and events in May. The health of our visitors and our employees is important to us! Please take into account the current information about your visit to the Media Park!

We offer online ticketing to regulate the number of visitors to the exhibitions in order to ensure that distances are maintained and to guarantee you a relaxed visit to the exhibition.

Visits to the exhibitions are currently limited to one hour. We would like to ask you to arrive on time and to bring your ticket with you.

Remaining tickets can be purchased at the museum box office. However, you may have to expect waiting times.

We look forward to your visit and wish you a pleasant or uplifting tour of the exhibition!

Your team from Die Photographische Sammlung Payment options: We ask for your understanding that you can not yet use the "Immediate" payment option on weekends. This will be activated over the next few days.
