Dear everybody out there,

We're closed, but we're still opening up: our exhibitions are ready, the upcoming show HOPE is being set up untiringly, and we want to let everyone participate. Therefore we want to share everything that we can about the artworks and the work which is still going on behind the scenes through our website and social media!

The title of our exhibition HOPE defines the motto. But also our showcase exhibition ON THE THIRD DAY... and our presentation PERSONAL FAVOURITES: "Onkel Canterbumm – How an Advertising Character Made It into the Archive" will be opened to you virtually. At the moment educational staff is developing a programme about the exhibitions that will soon be available.
We will keep you updated here, but also on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter concerning everything we are developing around our exhibitions and programmes.

TODAY we start with the question: What does hope mean to you?, which we have asked all our colleagues–whether in our home office or at Draiflessen working on the the exhibition or keeping our museum in operation. We post the answers and collect them here.
Feel free to participate in any manner–either by e-mail: or on our social media channels:
