The cultural-historical women’s museum wiesbaden focuses on the lifeworlds of women in the past, the present and the future.

Since its foundation in 1984, the award-winning, interdisciplinary women’s museum wiesbaden has been owned by the non-profit assocation Frauenwerkstatt Wiesbaden e.V. and has been financially supported by the City of Wiesbaden.

The museum creates temporary exhibitions on various subjects and shows them in its 600 square metre exhibition space. Contemporary art exhibitions give an insight into the creative world of artists, female figures from all over the world and all periods embody a comprehensive appreciation of history and culture, and thematic exhibitions present inspiring female personalities. Our multi-faceted programme of events ranges from conferences, seminars, panel discussions, readings, lectures and guided walking tours through the city to film projects and dance performances.

in 1997, the women’s museum wiesbaden was awarded the cultural prize of the City of Wiesbaden for its work.
