Become a part of the association!

In addition to institutional funding from the State of Berlin, membership fees are an indispensable source of income for realizing the projects of Schwules Museum. The regular membership fee supports Schwules Museum with 120 euros annually, while the reduced membership fee supports the Gay Museum with 37.50 euros. We are especially pleased about support contributions that exceed these amounts!

Reduced Fee

The reduced fee is based on the principle of solidarity and is particularly intended for trainees, students, retirees, unemployed individuals, and Berlin-Pass holders; as well as underrepresented groups within the association (women, lesbians, inter*, trans*, BIPoC). The reduction is based on trust, and proof is not required.
