The museum shop is operated by the Society of Citizen Volunteers Darmstadt (Verein Ehrenamt für Darmstadt e.V.). Here you can purchase publications, interesting objects and souvenirs.
For more than twenty years the Citizen Volunteers Darmstadt have been supporting arts and culture in Darmstadt. The members of the society work without remuneration, thus fostering cultural services which, otherwise, couldn't be maintained. Funded solely by subsidies and donations, the society has more than 400 members working in over 100 cultural institutions.
The HLMD is not only the first but also one of the society’s largest partners. the Citizen Volunteers assist in the conservation of objects in the Department of Prints and Drawings and are particularly involved in the scientific indexing of exhibits in the Cabinet of Physics. A sinologist attends to the ethnological treasures from Japan and China. They furthermore offer various guided tours to the museum’s permanent exhibition as well as to special exhibitions.
All members feel a close affinity to the HLMD. Their greatest reward are the museum’s appreciation and gratitude.
Please support the society with a donation or by personal participation.
