Since its establishment in 1994, the Friends of Museum Wiesbaden has been an important link between the city’s residents and the museum, working closely with the museum in carrying out its various activities from coordinating exhibitions to enabling the acquisition of new works for its collections.
A main focus of the Friends’ support lies in the cultural education of children and youth. The museum’s broad spectrum of educational programs and activities offers young visitors the opportunity to experience works of art and nature directly and tap into their creative energy.
The Friends take pride in their successful lobby work on behalf of the museum. Their persistent efforts and steadfast commitment over two decades to the conceptual and structural renovations of the museum’s building were an indispensable support.
The museum itself serves as a site and focus of the association’s various activities. Its members gather here for exhibit openings, lectures and concerts, hold discussions with artists and collectors, and plan trips to other art locations. The association profits from the experience and engagement of each individual member.
Members of the association also enjoy discounts on their purchases of catalogues, posters and edited volumes in the museum shop.
