About Friendship

The Übersee-Museum was founded thanks to the commitment of citizens. Just like Bremen citizens and business people have laid the foundation for the collections of the present-day Übersee-Museum in the 19th century, the Friends of the Übersee-Museum e.V. offers interested persons opportunities of becoming involved in the museum and its projects.

The members of the Friends of the Übersee-Museum have been supporting the museum since 1985, with the purpose of contributing to the inventory and further development of the museum, as well as enhancing its attractiveness. Among others, the membership contributions support the museum in implementing individual undertakings, exhibitions or the restoration of objects. New members – individual persons, families, companies or institutions – are always more than welcome.
