The Overstolzen Society is the successor of the Kölnische Kunstgewerbe-Verein, which was founded in 1888 by eminent Cologne citizens such as Gabriel Hermeling, Jakob Pallenberg, Karl Thewalt and Alexander Schnütgen.
As a member of the non-profit Overstolzen Society, you support the museum in acquiring high-class works of art, in organising exhibitions and events, in research activities, in producing publications and in its important press and PR activities.
The society publishes an annual report on the activities of both the museum and the society. You can contribute your questions, wishes and ideas to be discussed at the general meetings or in direct conversations with museum staff.
The membership fee is tax-deductable.
