Support the Museum

Do you have a special place in your heart for the history of Eindhoven? Support us and become a Friend of Eindhoven Museum.

To be able to carry out special projects, Eindhoven Museum needs financial support. The foundation Vrienden (Friends) van Eindhoven Museum gives this support. Through this it is possible to keep improving the museum, so adults and children alike can keep on enjoying our activities. The foundation Stichting Vrienden van Eindhoven Museum also commits itself to help shape the local art scene in Eindhoven.


With the help of the 'Vrienden' we were able to bring about several projects. With your help we can achieve more!

The board of 'Vrienden' will commit itself again this year to show the stored artefacts and art objects to the public.

The foundation Vrienden van Eindhoven Museum is a member of Nederlandse Federatie van Vrienden van Musea ( Dutch Federation of Friend of Museums). The foundation Vrienden van Eindhoven Museum has an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (Institute for Common Use) status with the tax authorities.


You can become a Vriend van Eindhoven Museum for € 25.00 p.p. annualy. A bigger contribution will be greatly appreciated as well, of course.

What will we offer you for this sum?

  • free admission for two  lectures organised by Vrienden van Eindhoven Museum and Eindhoven Museum.

Historisch Foodfest
21 & 22 september

Honger! Er zijn van oudsher maar een paar basisbehoeften: eten, onderdak en kleding. Het weekend van 21 en 22 september storten we ons in het voedselavontuur: van prehistorie tot late middeleeuwen. Hoe houd je iets lang houdbaar zonder koelkast? Dronken we in de prehistorie al alcohol? Wat waren de tafelgewoonten in de middeleeuwen en waar kwamen die vandaan? Hoe ver reisde men voor die ene maaltijd?
