Support the Ostpreußisches Landesmuseum

The Ostpreußisches Landesmuseum (East Prussian Regional Museum) is the only museum in Germany that broaches the issue of East Prussia’s history and culture. We are also aiming for cross-border cooperation with our eastern neighbours. As our task is getting more difficult, we need your help.


As a non-profit cultural institution, our museum depends on financial support.Our “Ostpreußische Kulturstiftung” (Cultural Foundation of East Prussia) in Ellingen is not able to support the museum with its assets. We are therefore almost entirely financed by the government.


The public cash boxes are empty, though, and the publicly financed cultural organisations suffer. Is a cultural nation such as Germany not obliged to support their appealing museums? 



You can help!


  • With small or large contributions, you can help us to finance exhibitions, to purchase or restore objects, or simply with our daily work! >>>more


  • With donations in kind. We collect everything that is related to East Prussia: Pictures, documents, keepsakes, etc. It does not need to be valuable and could be an everyday object as well. Ask our curator Dr. Barfod >>>more


  • Do you have some time to spare? Are you looking for a worthwhile task within a friendly environment? Come and join us as a volunteer. >>>more


  • You have no heirs, but still feel deeply connected with your East Prussian homeland?  You can help keeping the memory alive. Our museum is a respectable cultural institution that fulfils a legal obligation. Please contact our director Dr. Mähnert >>>more
