Schwules Museum

Museums, Specialist interest Kreuzberg

The Gay Museum, opened in 1985, is still the only one in the world dedicated to homosexual life in all its forms. The museum, its library and archives are staffed by volunteers and function thanks to private donations and bequests (such as the archive of DDR sex scientist Rudolf Klimmer). On the ground floor is the actual museum, housing permanent and temporary exhibitions. On the third floor, the library and archives house around 8,000 books (around 500 in English), 3,000 international periodicals, photos, posters, plus TV, film and audio footage, all available for lending.
