The Porsche Museum welcomes visitors anew

Porsche Museum

The Porsche Museum is now open to the public. After eight weeks of shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Porsche dream facility will once again showcase the brand's history and legacy in Stuttgart, Germany.

Now that the "new normal" is focused on safety, Porsche Museum will make the health and safety of its visitors and personnel its top priority. Porsche will implement all the measures required by the state to protect everyone from the coronavirus. This includes a new guidance system for the entire building that will only allow a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between visitors.

Another safety guideline they will impose is controlling the number of visitors that will come to the museum. Their operating hours will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays to Sundays, but food-related areas will remain closed.

“We will also provide face masks and disinfectants. We carry out regular occupational safety training for staff relating to hygiene and conduct recommendations,” said Achim Stejskal, the head of Heritage and the Porsche Museum.

Stjskal also added that the Porsche Museum will extend the validity of the yearly tickets by two months. This is equivalent to the duration that the museum was closed due to the COVID-19 scare.

Despite getting stuck in a two-month limbo and waiting for its eventual reopening, the Porsche Museum took advantage of its closure by doing their renovation and maintenance work for 2020.

One of these projects involved the conceptual reorientation of the entrance to the “Prologue” permanent exhibition, which showcases Porsche's humble beginnings until 1948.

The company also took advantage of the quarantine by providing the public with some attractions, such as inviting Porsche racing drivers like Stephane Ortelli, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Marc Lieb, Kurt Ahrens and Mark Webber to chat with their fans and answer some of their questions last April. This was their way of helping people cope with the the quarantine.

The Porsche Museum also offered online treats to kids. These included various games and activities on the www.porsche4kids.com website. Here, children could color pictures, solve puzzles and learned about the history of electric-powered mobility, starting from electric vehicles right through the Porsche Taycan.
