The MARKK promotes the appreciation for the cultures and arts of the world. There are many ways to support our work. In addition to our exhibition projects and art education programs, research work, cooperation with the cultures of origin and the restoration of our objects are among the central aspects of the museum’s work. Every donation makes an important financial and non-material contribution. We are happy to inform you about current projects and thank you very much for your support and interest in our museum.

Your donation is tax-deductible. We will gladly issue you a donation receipt.

With a restoration sponsorship you give us the possibility to repair and maintain valuable pieces of the collection, whose preservation represents an important contribution to saving past traditions and technologies and thus allows us to make these available to the public. In order to get an up-to-date overview of objects in need of restoration and to select your sponsorship object, you are very welcome to contact us.

Your donation is tax deductible. We will gladly issue you a donation receipt. If your sponsorship exceeds € 5,000, our curators will personally present to you your sponsorship object before and after the restoration.


The cultural commitment of companies makes an important contribution to MARKK’s projects, which gain great public visibility. As a partner, you can either accompany us on a long-term basis or support the museum’s distinguished and high-profile exhibitions.

As a partner of the MARKK, your company benefits from the regional, national and international appeal of the museum. We offer a wide range of services and privileges for company partners and their employees.


The preservation of our international art and cultural heritage is just as much a part of the museum’s tasks as the scientific research and well-planned expansion of our collections, the exhibition of these works and a sustainable and diverse mediation and educational work.

The collections of the MARKK have significance far beyond the borders of this country. They store and preserve past traditions and technologies for future generations. The museum sees itself as an open archive of world knowledge and enables visitors to participate in its collections. More and more people from the societies of origin are seeking access to their cultural heritage in the museum depots.

With a legacy donation you leave something lasting, support the work of the museum and contribute to its further development.

We would be happy to advise you in a personal and confidential meeting and are always available to answer your questions.
