Your Visit


Unfortunately, no visits are possible until the construction work is completed.

The former ‘Samurai Art Museum’ in Dahlem will now house the Research Centre of the Peter Janssen Collection.

The ‘Samurai Museum Berlin’ will open at its new location in Berlin Mitte in early 2022.

The presentation of the most comprehensive and renowned Janssen Collection on the subject of the samurai offers the opportunity to experience this fascinating era of Japanese history in an entirely new form. From original historical objects to contemporary perspectives, immersive technology (virtual reality) will make it possible to discover the world of the samurai. As soon as the concrete opening date is defined, we will announce it.

We look forward to welcoming you soon at Auguststraße 68 / Berlin Mitte!

Our staff is encouraged to ensure that these regulations are respected, and we ask you to follow their instructions where necessary.

• To protect the works of art, all indoor and outdoor spaces are monitored by CCTV. The museum and all museum items are fitted with an alarm system.

• Rucksacks, bags, and any other personal items larger than an A4 sheet of paper present a security risk and must therefore be deposited before entering the museum. The museum accepts no responsibility for loss and or damage to deposited items. These items may be deposited free of charge.

• Photography and video recording, both professional and private, are not permitted. We would like to remind you that the publication of photographic material online, e.g. on social media, does not constitute private usage and is therefore an infringement of copyright.

• In the interest of maintaining a pleasant environment for all our visitors, please keep your phone on silent and do not make any phone calls when you are in the museum.

• Exhibits may vary for reasons related to the running of the museum. We therefore thank you for your understanding should one or more items not be on display.

•Eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted in the museum or Villa Clay.
