Together we protect ourselves against covid-19

Strict measures that apply in our reading room as well as in the KBR museum guarantee our visitors a pleasant and safe visit. We ask you to respect these rules in order to protect everyone’s health.

At various places in the building, the measures are clearly indicated. During your visit, our reception staff will ensure maximum comfort in accordance with the current health standards.

Are you sick or showing symptoms of covid-19? Then postpone your visit for a while. KBR offers you the option of postponing your reservation for the reading room or the KBR museum to a later date, free of charge. This can be done by informing us by email or telephone (02 519 53 11) before the scheduled time of your visit.
