Sponsors wanted!

What would a museum be without its exhibits? There are 1.2 million “contemporary witnesses” from across the world that bring history to life in the Übersee-Museum and succeed in making great distances vanish, in addition to elucidating the cultural or natural history coherences and allowing visitors to expand their knowledge. Yet preserving these for posterity is by no means simple. Restoration or taxidermy requires a high degree of expertise as well as the appropriate equipment.

Therefore, with the slogan “Museums need Friends – Exhibits need Sponsors”, the Übersee-Museum is in search of people who would like to become involved in providing financial assistance aimed at preserving and maintaining individual exhibits. By doing so, the museum is supported in satisfying its educational mandate, in addition to being preserved as a place for lifelong learning as well as intercultural encounters. Sponsorships in value of 50 to 10,000 euros can be pledged. We would be happy to provide individual consultation regarding the different sponsorship possibilities.
