In good company

Since its founding in 1901, the RJM Museum Society has supported the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum. It finances exhibitions and restoration projects, acquisitions and pedagogical programmes. Apart from that it publishes scientific articles in its series "Ethnologica" and organises a diverse programme of events. Additionally our members volunteer their time in the everyday running of the museum: they oversee the information stand, offer tours and run the museum shop.
