The Museumsverein (Museum Association) was founded in 2004. As the patrons association of the Deutsches Historisches Museum (DHM), it supports the museum’s work, including in expanding the collection through new accessions. Especially when it comes to one-off acquisitions, the DHM is often unable to purchase objects that suddenly come up for sale, primarily because its budget requirements are long-term. We help the museum to seize such acquisition opportunities when they arise. In addition, we also finance and participate in the DHM’s publications, events, and projects. The funds for these activities are raised from membership fees and donations.
