The Society of Friends and Supporters of the Röntgen Museum is the driving force behind the restructuring and repositioning of the museum
Founded in 1951, the Society has some 350 members worldwide. Its declared aims are to support the museum financially in the acquisition and maintenance of objects for exhibition and in public relations activities. Close cooperation between the museum management, the Society of Friends and Benefactors and the City of Remscheid has led to the Society playing a leading role in acquiring funding from industry, charitable foundations and public authorities. Its many contacts in science, industry and culture, and its frequent presence at congresses and other professional events, have enabled the Society to bring the museum and its work to the attention of a wide and interested public.
