The Schwule Museum (Gay Museum) was founded in 1985 to give a home to the history and culture of gay men and their emancipation movement, their history(s) devalued and excluded by the museums and archives of mainstream society, artistic works, life testimonies and movement documents. Since then, the house has continued to develop: Today, the SMU is the most important international centre of excellence for researching, preserving and presenting the culture and history of queer people and sexual and gender diversity, as well as a sought-after cooperation partner for museums and universities, cultural funding institutions, artists* and activists from all over the world. The museum is located at Lützowplatz in Berlin-Tiergarten.
