  • Health statuses of all employees are being closely monitored.
  • No more than 27 people are allowed in the theater at one time and masks are obligatory.



  • Wear a mask at all times inside the theater.

If you feel unwell or have recently been in contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, we suggest that you postpone your visit to the museum. We remind you that we measure the temperature of each visitor entering the museum, and that only visitors with temperatures lower than 37.5 degrees can enter the museum.

We kindly ask that all visitors wear masks and maintain safe social distances while entering the museum and during their entire visit. Please follow the instructions of Istanbul Modern’s security personnel at all times.

Lastly, we would like to remind you that you can use contactless payment methods instead of cash when purchasing tickets at the museum desk.
