There are several ways and means to get involved with the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum.

Friends of the Museum

Become a member of our support association, the Museumsgesellschaft RJM e.V. As a member, you will participate directly in the cultural activities of the RJM. In a long-standing tradition, the Friends of the Museum support its activities and development.

For as little as €28 or €48 per year, you can support the RJM and at the same time get a special look behind the scenes as well as an extensive, additional program of events and excursions. More detailed information is available here:

Voluntary work

Currently, about 80 people work voluntarily at the RJM. They look after the information desk and the museum store, offer guided tours, actively help out in the library or the archives, conduct research and provide support at events.


Become a sponsor of the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum! We offer a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities. From a temporary project cooperation (e.g. lectures, cinema series, restoration sponsorships or special exhibitions) to long-term partnerships. Often, a project results in a lasting friendship. What a sponsorship package can contain and how much it costs depends on the respective objective of the partnership. We look forward to hearing from you!
