Folkwang-Museumsverein e. V. is a registered charity. Contributions and donations are thus tax-deductible within the framework of existing legislation.

New members are welcome

We want the Folkwang idea – the advancement of the arts and the public communication of artistic themes – to be present thanks to our members, too. They are communicators who support Museum Folkwang in its broad appeal. New memberships tend to come about on the recommendation of existing members.

How we would like our members to be involved: Through a lively identification with the institution and its tasks, as well as occasional contributions to expanding the collection or carrying our museum projects in special cases and at member’s own discretion.

Are you interested? Apply for a membership here (fields marked * are mandatory). A member of the museum board will contact you promptly.
