Every first Sunday of the month in almost all Berlin museums

Berlin is getting an admission-free Museum Sunday: from July 4, almost all Berlin museums will be inviting visitors to visit them free of charge on the first Sunday of every month and will be offering a diverse program.

With around 60 institutions, the admission-free Museum Sunday covers the entire diversity of Berlin's museum landscape and thus a rich range of topics from culture, art, design, religion, history, nature, everyday culture and technology.

Museum Sunday is an initiative of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe in cooperation with the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and the Berlin State Association of Museums.

The aim is to strengthen cultural participation and to open up cultural institutions to the entire society.
With low-threshold offers, an improved quality of stay and a welcoming culture, the museums want to attract non-visitors and thus actively shape social participation..

Museum Sunday is a model project. Findings about the effect of the admission-free Sunday are provided by an accompanying, broad-based scientific visitor study.

The expectations for the effect of admission-free Museum Sundays on greater and broader cultural participation in Berlin museums and memorial sites are high: The goal of the model project, which is unique in Germany, is to strengthen Berlin's museum landscape and to inspire a broader city population to visit.

It is being carried out by the Institute for Cultural Participation Research (IKTf) in the Berlin Foundation for Cultural Education and Cultural Consulting.
