Limited number of visitors
Only 1600 persons may be in the building at the same time. Groups may only be formed by persons from the same household or school classes. The maximum number of visitors in the building will be indicated on the LED wall near the entrance.
In case of greater demand, the maximum number of visitors cannot be complied with and we will have to limit admission. We appreciate your understanding in this situation.
It’s best to ensure your visit with an online ticket.
Annual Passes SGPT
A contingent is reserved for annual pass holders of the Schweizerische Gesellschaft Pro Technorama (SGPT). You can come to Technorama at any time without having to consider the current occupancy rate.
Demonstrations will not take place until further notice. The open-lab operation (free experimentation in the laboratory) is taking place, but the number of guests per lab is limited to a maximum number of 12 persons (6 individuals or maximum 3 family groups of 4 persons each).
Closed events with small groups of up to 12 persons can take place in the laboratory while adhering to the distancing rules. The choice of experiments will be adjusted to meet the distancing rules. The selection of workshops will be adapted to the distance rules. Currently we can only offer the following workshops for small groups of up to 8 people:
- Pleased to meet me – DNA
- Leuchteffekte in Natur und Haushalt – Fluoreszenz
- Do not try this @ home – Mikrowelle
Please book the workshops online.
For hygienic reasons, exhibits with direct face contact (mouth, nose, eyes) will also be closed (e.g. pin screens) or wet wipes will be provided for cleaning.
Children’s birthday parties can be held with a maximum of 12 people (including adults).
The shop will be open from 10 o’clock.
No more than 8 people may be admitted at a time.
Restaurant and picnic zones
The restaurant will also be open and will be operated by the ZFV according to the specifications of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and it is temporarily open from 10.30 am – 2.30 pm.
The Sunday brunch is temporarily not taking place.
In the picnic zone, the number of seating groups and tables will be reduced so that a distance of 1.5 m can be maintained between the tables.
Seminar Rooms and Events
From Monday, 22 June 2020, events & rental rooms are again bookable almost without any restrictions, including standing catering.
The following protective measures apply for events:
- Usual rules of hygiene.
- Minimum distance of 1.5 metres in the rented rooms, as far as this is possible due to the size of the group and the seating arrangements.
- Contact tracing; you provide us with a list with the contact details of all your event participants and you report illness to us immediately.
Washing facilities with water and soap are provided in the toilets. In addition to the soap and paper towel stands in the toilet facilities, disinfectant stands are available at the entrance and at the access to all sectors. Soap, paper towels and disinfectant are checked and refilled regularly.
There are over 10 separate toilet facilities in the building. For this reason, crowding will hardly occur and all toilets may only be used by a maximum of two persons.
The cleaning intervals for interaction surfaces (buttons, handles, objects) in the exhibition and frequently touched surfaces (door handles, banisters, lift buttons, beverage vending machines) will be increased.
In addition to basic cleaning at the end or at the start of the day, two additional cleaning rounds will be carried out at midday and in the afternoon. If necessary, particularly exposed locations will be cleaned more frequently.
Reminders of the protective measures of the FOPH will be posted at the entrances to the building, to the restaurant and at all sector entrances. We will remind our guests of the distancing rules in announcements.
Technorama has documented all measures in an official protection concept.
