Please sign the petition to stop the closure of the Theatre Museum at the Hofgärtnerhaus in Düsseldorf (Germany)!

Düsseldorf is one of Germany’s leading cities for performing arts. Its Theatre Museum holds one of the most significant theatre collections in Germany. It is a renowned center for research and educational work, hosting over 400 events per year.

The city is currently considering plans to close the museum and sell the historic Hofgärtnerhaus! There is no commitment by the city to house the collection in an alternative venue.

We urge you to sign this petition in support of the continued funding for and operation of the Düsseldorf Theatre Museum in the Hofgärtnerhaus.
