“Selling exhibition tickets in two blocks is a departure from past ticketing processes,”  Christoph Heinrich, the Director of the DAM, said in a news release. “This approach allows us to be nimble with ticketing, and make any necessary adjustments to maintain a healthy museum environment for our visitors and staff.”
