Friends of the Kunstmuseum Bonn e. V.

Who are we?

We are the Friends of the Kunstmuseum Bonn! As a registered association, we believe in the importance of civic commitment as an essential part of a functioning society. We are committed to the Kunstmuseum materially and immaterially – as a network of science, economy, art and culture.

Since 1985, we have been supporting the museum in the purchase of new works of contemporary art and Rhenish Expressionism, as well as in educational and exhibition projects for children and young people.

We are friends and need friends!

Visitors are important! But we are looking for more: active supporters!

This is your chance!

Among friends

With your commitment you will be among like-minded friends, take part in the active cultural life, meet and exchange with art and culture lovers. And, of course, enjoy the special friendship of the museum.

Acquisitions by the Friends

Through our financial and immaterial commitment, numerous artworks have been purchased over the years.

Sponsorship foundation

In 2021, the Friends and the Kunstmuseum Bonn established a Sponsorship Foundation to support the museum. This means that donations of works of art that usefully expand and supplement the collection as well as other contributions can now be accepted.
