There are 2 disabled parking spaces in front of the main entrance to Museum Brandhorst.
There are two elevators for visitors. The elevators provide access to all exhibition levels (lower level, ground floor, upper floor). Another elevator connects the entrance foyer (ground floor) with the cloakroom level (lower level).
Wheelchairs are available at the information desk upon request. It is of course possible to visit the exhibition galleries with the help of a wheelchair.
The museum provides restrooms for disabled visitors in three locations: on the upper level beyond the Lounge, on the lower floor near the cloakroom, and beside the media suite.
Lockers (deposit required: 1.00 € or 2.00 €) are available on the lower floor. A staffed cloakroom service is open on Sundays from October to April.
Visitors are kindly requested to leave bulky items such as umbrellas and larger prams here. To ensure the safety of the artworks, bags larger than a foolscap sheet of A4 paper must also be left in the cloakroom.
Bicycle trailers that double as prams are not allowed in the galleries, but may be stored in the cloakroom.
The Café is open during our regular opening hours.
In order to ensure a considerate treatment of exhibits and visitors, the following house rules apply.
Due to recent circumstances, the security provisions in our museums have been strengthened. For our visitors, the following changes will apply until further notice:
– Items such as bags, regardless of size, as well as coats and jackets must be left at the cloakroom or in the lockers.
– Bags that for example must be carried for health reasons, will be checked by the staff for their contents.
– Items such as bags which have been inspected by the staff will be marked with wristbands and may then be carried without restriction.
We regret the inconvenience caused and ask for your understanding in the interest of protecting the artworks and buildings.
