Since its founding in 1984, this award winning and interdisciplinary museum has been sponsored by the nonprofit Frauenwerkstatt Wiesbaden, among others, and is further funded by the city’s Cultural Office.
The museum develops and presents 600 square meters of changing exhibitions focusing on different themes. Contemporary art exhibits offer glimpses into the creative minds of women artists from all times and places, putting together a more comprehensive historical and cultural understanding. Special exhibit themes present inspiring feminine personalities. The various programming available ranges from conferences, seminars, lectures, readings, and walking tours to film viewings and dance performances.
In 1997 the Wiesbaden Women's Museum received the Wiesbaden Culture Award.
