We reserve the right to make changes at short notice in order to offer you the safest possible visit.

The exhibitions are open

The exhibitions are open with a few exceptions.

See information about current exhibitions on our exhibition page.


Cosmonova is open every day that the museum is open. The number of seats are limited due to covid-19 restrictions. We only sell tickets online. A ticket to Cosmonova is also valid as a ticket to the exhibitions in the museum. Remember to scan the ticket before the movie!

See Cosmonova's programme.

To offer as safe a visit as possible to Cosmonova, we have taken several precautions. We welcome a limited number of visitors at a time according to the government's decision. Inside the theater, a maximum of 4 people in the same company may sit together with a distance of at least 1 meter to other groups. Entry and exit takes place one row at a time and our staff helps and assigns space. We also clean the salon between performances. Welcome if you feel healthy!
