Special offer: when you sign up for membership for the forthcoming year befoee the end off the current year and pay the annual fee immediately, you receive free admission from 1 December onwards – giving you an extra month of membership for free!

The membership fee is not tax deductible, only donations beyond that.

Membership in more detail

The contribution year always corresponds to the calendar year!

Irrespective of the month in which your Deutsches Museum membership starts, the full annual membership fee is always due – we are not able to offer "pro rata" fees. Membership automatically runs for an unlimited number of calendar years (limitation possible for gift memberships). It can, however, be terminated in writing at any time, but no later than 31 October, to the end of the calendar year.

More Fun – Special tours for members only

As a member, you can join exclusive guided tours at all of our branches: gain unique insights into the exhibitions with experts.

Even though the museum is open, protection against Covid-19 infection remains a top priority. Therefore, the member tours can only take place in a limited form and will be supplemented with online formats - click here for the programme.

We are always open virtually! On our YouTube channel we have special playlists of our virtual tours for members, such as the M.Com-Kaffeepause or the M.Com-Feierabendführung.
