The archive is the heart of the Schwules Museum. Featuring more than 1.500.000 items, it is by far the largest and most extensive collection of documents, ephemera, and artwork associated with LGBTIQ* history and culture in Germany. Our archive is among the most important centers for LGBTIQ* research worldwide, and is in constant conversation with our exhibition and public events program.
The collections grow daily through donations, transfers of LGBTIQ* related collections from public archives, associations and political groups. If you are interested in donating collections to the Museum, please contact email@example.com
The collections are only partially processed. Finding aids for the processed sections of the collections are available on-site.
