Museum Society
Clemens Sels Museum Neuss

A warm welcome to you!

We, the ASSOCIATION OF FRIENDS AND PROMOTERS OF THE CLEMENS SELS MUSEUM e.V., are a community of citizens with the common goal to support the institute, whose name we bear, financially and ideally in a non-profit way.


Exhibitions, purchases, restorations or even special educational offers - the generous support of the Museum Association makes many things possible!

In its more than 50-year history, the association has not only sponsored numerous presentations, but also supported the purchase of more than 15 top-class works. The preservation of the collection for future generations by supporting restorations is also on the association's agenda. Of central importance for the social relevance of museums is the mediation and educational work, which also needs to be supported.

In addition to the positive accompaniment of the museum's work, the association also wants to network in order to influence society and politics so that the Clemens Sels Museum Neuss has an attractive perspective for the future. The discussions about a new building on the Wendersplatz play an important role in this. Get involved in shaping the future of culture in Neuss!
