The creation of Schwules Museum started in 1984, at the Berlin Museum (today's Märkisches Museum) when, the director was persuaded to take an innovative step. Three students had suggested to create an exhibition on homosexual men and women in Berlin for the museum.
From this idea the legendary exhibition Eldorado – the History, Everyday Life and Culture of Homosexual Women and Men 1850-1950 was born and took place in the Berlin Museum. It was a great success even if it was considered as controversial by some and got 40,000 visitors.
The project of founding the Schwules Museum was crystalized out of this success. The following year, in 1985 the Verein der Freunde eines Schwulen Museums in Berlin e.V. (Friends of a Gay Museum in Berlin) was founded and started to laid a museum library and an archive.
Since then, the Schwules Museum has grown into one of the world's largest and most significant institutions for archiving, researching and communicating the history and culture of GLBTIQ communities.
You can expect changing exhibitions and events with a diverse approache to lesbian, gay, trans, bisexual and queer biographies, themes and concepts in history, art and culture.
