The Patrons of the German Leather Museum was founded in 1987 with its objective as stated in its statutes being to support the museum in its work, particularly in terms of financial assistance for purchasing items, realizing exhibitions, and developing international contacts. From the outset, the association has worked primarily to expand the collection. Around 1,250 exhibition items have already been acquired by the museum thanks to funding from the Patrons association.

With its members, which include companies, associations and private patrons of the arts, it also provides advice to the museum on the realization of new exhibition and presentation formats.

The German Leather Museum is relying on the Patrons’ assistance for lots of exciting projects and purchases in the future, too.

New friends and patrons are always warmly welcomed to the group.

Members get free admission to the German Leather Museum exhibition, free program information, and preferential admission to special tours, workshops, presentations and openings.

The Patrons of the German Leather Museum is a non-profit organization. Contributions and donations are tax-deductible. The Patrons of the German Leather Museum will be happy to provide detailed information on the advantages of membership as well as the association’s planned projects and activities.
