Porsche reopens its museum

May 6, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The coming Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the Porsche Museum will open its doors again.

To prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, the museum was closed for visits from March 14 – as much as eight weeks. The resumption of the museum is carried out in accordance with the decisions of the federal government and the rules of the land of Baden-Württemberg, aimed at protecting against infection with coronavirus. Among them, for example, the introduction of a new system for organizing the flow of visitors in a building, according to which a minimum distance of 1.50 meters should be maintained between guests.

“In addition, we offer face masks and disinfectants,” emphasizes Achim Stayskal, Heritage Division Director and Director of the Porsche Museum. “For employees, we provide regular training with recommendations on hygiene and rules of conduct.” The number of visitors to the museum is limited by control at the entrance. Opening hours remained unchanged – from Tuesday to Sunday from 9 to 18 hours. Excursions and didactic programs are not yet offered. Gastronomic areas also remain closed. “We extend the validity of the annual subscription for two months, that is, for the time that the museum remained closed due to the coronavirus crisis,” said Achim Steiskal.

While the Porsche Museum was closed, maintenance and repair work was scheduled for this year. So, we began to work on changing the concept of the zone at the entrance to the permanent exhibition, the so-called “Prologue”, which tells about the first years of the enterprise until 1948. Since the work is not finished yet, the admission fee has so far been halved.
