A central contact point for all visitors will open in April 2023 in the former Margravial Comedy and Redoutenhaus next door.

The adjoi­ning buil­ding of the Margra­vial Opera House will become a museum with a World Heri­tage infor­ma­tion center. The opening ceremony is planned for April 21, 2023. On April 22, 2023, there will be an open day with free entry for all citizens. 

The Margra­vial Opera House in Bayreuth was declared a UNESCO World Heri­tage Site in 2012. Part of the buil­ding ensemble, the Margra­vial Comedy and Redou­ten­haus, has been under­going reno­va­tions since autumn 2019. 

The perma­nent exhi­bi­tion that is being created here will show the outstan­ding posi­tion of the Margra­vial Opera House and the baroque theater and opera culture under Margra­vine Wilhel­mine. It pres­ents inte­res­ting facts about the Margra­vine and the archi­tect of the well-known buil­ding, theater life on and behind the stage as well as Bayreuth theater history. The World Heri­tage Infor­ma­tion Center will also be set up there.
