Closing of the ZKM | Media Museum ::
Dear Visitors,
The sprinkler system in the ZKM | Media Museum must be renewed! For this reason, the museum has to be completely emptied and the normal museum service closed consecutively on each of the building’s floors:

  • The 2nd floor ("ZKM_Gameplay"") is schedule to close on August 4, 2014,
  • The 1st floor ("Holography from the ZKM collection" &
    "AppArtAward − Highlights 2014") is scheduled to close on August 18, 2014,
  • The ground floor ("Jean-Jacques Lebel. The Highest of All the Arts is Insurrection" & "Jonas Mekas. 365 Day Project") is scheduled to close on November 10, 2014.
The renovation of the sprinkler system serves to protect our visitors from the risk of fire. We thank you for your understanding. With GLOBALE, we look also forward to reopen the ZKM | Media Museum with you on June 19, 2015.
