PROTECTIVE MEASURES

The safety of our visitors and staff is our highest priority. This is why the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum has developed a set of protective measures in preparation for its reopening on 12 May 2020, which is based on guidelines released by the Federal Government and the Canton Basel-City as well as recommendations from the Swiss Museums Association.

This set of measures includes the following key aspects:

  • The flow of visitors will be controlled in such a way that the required amount of interpersonal distance can be maintained.
  • Hand disinfectant will be provided at various locations.
  • The museum infrastructure will be cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Visitors will be asked to pay using debit and credit cards when possible.
  • Face masks are required.


Thank you for your understanding and for your cooperation with these measures, which are meant for the protection of everybody.
