Friends of Münchner Stadtmuseum

It was thanks to the patronage and sense of citizenship of the people of Munich that the Münchner Stadtmuseum was founded in 1888. What started off as a local history museum has grown into today’s diverse and outward-looking museum and exhibition center, where the cultural heritage of Munich and Bavaria sits comfortably alongside contemporary cultural history from around the world.

Today, civic engagement is more important than ever. The Münchner Stadtmuseum relies on its friends and patrons in order to realize its various projects and maintain its unique mission despite cutbacks in public funding.

We therefore welcome contributions of all sizes by individuals and organizations as well as voluntary work and advice from our friends.
