. Get to know more about us

In 1981 the director, Marianne Pitzen, and a group of interdisciplinary working women founded the first women's museum. At this time there didn't exist any institution worlwide with the same name or comparable aims. Today the women's museum can look back at more than 700 exhibitions. With its extensively accompanying programs it has become an institution which is internationally established. Today, the Frauenmuseum Bonn is the seat of the International Association of Women's Museums, which was founded in 2012.

Founder Marianne Pitzen
Since the existence of the women's museum, work from 3000 female artists was shown. Meanwhile a lot of them could establish themselves on the international art market. The women's museum is no static place with solid continuance but a vivid house that renews itself with the wealth of female creativity and variety. Meanwhile approx. 350 members belong to the association FM art, culture, research e.V.

In 1989, as part of the two thousandth anniversary of the city Bonn, the Frauenmuseum showed an exhibition entitled "Die Bonnerinnen" (The Women of Bonn), which was one of the most well-received projects of the anniversary. Since then, exhibitions dealing with women's history have been a reoccurring and set part of the museum's repertoire and work.
