Support the Museum of Religions

With more than 10,000 artifacts from various religious traditions, the Museum of Religions is one of the oldest non-confessional/secular collections in Europe and the only museum in Germany that takes a comparative approach to multiple religions and worldviews. While it is an invaluable source of scientific, social, and historical knowledge, the collection also poses major challenges in terms of storage, restoration, research, and exposition.

Your donation contributes to the preservation and improvement of the collection.

The goals of the association (FöReMa) are to support the museum, particularly in the preservation, research, and display of the artifacts in the collection, as well as in its role in teaching, research, and public relations. Its objective is also to support religious studies as a scientific discipline, both financially and theoretically.
