Extraordinary closures call for extraordinary re-openings. The public will once again be allowed access to the MAH in a safe environment for a chance to experience the museum like never before. In view of sanitary measures currently in place on the federal and cantonal levels, this reunion promises an exclusive experience, offering visitors a chance to enjoy some one-on-one time with pieces on display. The time has come to once again discover the collections in the flesh, after this unplanned period of digital interaction forced us to dematerialise them. Here is some important information to prepare your visit:

Access to exhibitions
The permanent exhibition of the MAH remains accessible, without reservation. Halls were reorganised to limit the number and rationalise the flow of visitors. The first floor of the Fine Arts and Archaeology collections now imposes one-way flow for visitors. Access to the ground-floor rooms (Salle des armures, Applied arts, Château de Zizers, etc.) will be controlled to comply with maximum capacity limitations.

To visit the exhibition Gilbert Albert, visitors need to purchase their ticket online, on the MAH website and book a time slot. A dedicated line at the front entrance will be reserved for visitors of the exhibition. Punctuality is required. Visitors arriving more than ten minutes late might be denied access, with no right for a refund.

This fall’s exhibitions ("Etching is fashionable" & Fred Boissonnas and the Mediterranean) are yet to be confirmed, as the programme will depend on the evolution of the epidemic situation and recommendations from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, but mandatory online ticket reservations may be generalised.


Inside the museum
Every measure was taken to ensure the protection of visitors and staff.

Critical locations (door handles, staircase railings, etc.) are disinfected twice daily. Hand sanitiser distributors are available in several locations around the museum. Lockers have been relocated into the first two rooms at the entrance to avoid concentration of individuals. Each floor was assessed to determine the maximum number of visitors. Messages will remind visitors to comply with barrier gestures and hygiene measures, and markings on the floor in key locations like the entrance hall and lavatories will help visitors maintain social distancing.

Upon their arrival, visitors will receive a floor map and a flyer containing detailed information on how to download audio commentaries and how to use their phones as audioguides. No other printed information or documentation will be available.

How to prepare your visit

To avoid unnecessary contacts, we encourage you to prepare your visit:

By downloading and printing your own visitor guide in the language of your choice.





By downloading the two audioguides specially created to guide your visit through the museum, and therefore improve visitor flow and promote social distancing.
Audioguide: Mediation's crushes

Audioguide: Travelling

Bibliothèque d’art et d’archéologie
The entire range of BAA services is available again (except the consultation of valuable funds). Please note that on-site consultation is limited to a maximum of 20 persons. Priority will be given to people with a reader's card. Payments are made exclusively by credit or debit card, and books can only be ordered online via teh RERO-Explore catalogue.

The library is open from Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, closed on Saturdays.

Although we are taking every measure to preserve the health and safety of our public, we encourage vulnerable visitors to postpone their visit.

We look forward to welcoming you back at the MAH!
