Lancaster, California

Not a museum. Porno, nothing else. Videos and art of naked men dancing, having sex, spanking, etc. NO history, no context. A waste of time and money. Skip it.
False name and false advertising. So sorry we ever bothered to find it, and I am a liberal, open minded sort.

The world’s first-ever museum devoted to LGBT history, the Schwules celebrated its silver anniversary in 2013 with a move to a huge new home just south of the Tiergarten, nearly tripling its original size. A fascinating main exhibit traces different periods of the LGBT past, while a great line-up of temporary shows presents underexposed queer artists as well as little-seen sides of bigger-name icons, such as the private photographs of film director F.W. Murnau. A must-do for any gay first-timer to Berlin.

The small "Gay Museum" bills itself as one of the only museums in the world dedicated to LGBT/gay/queer artists. There's a small cafe in the lobby and the art hanging in the museum is quite varied. Worth a visit for the novelty — and to support LGBT causes.

First to Review

The Gay Museum, since 1985, strives to support the research and presentation of gay life. It is from this work, a unique collection of gay social history and development of gay liberation, but also documents the oppression of gay self-expression.

The permanent exhibit "self-confidence and perseverance. 200 years of gay history" provides an overview of the history of homosexuals in Berlin with a focus in the period from 1790 to 1990. He is the historical foundation on which to base today's gay identity.

In addition, changing exhibitions on culture, history and everyday life of gays to be developed and demonstrated, the focus is the realization and maintenance of various biographies of individual gay man.

Ein interessantes Museum, etwas versteckte Lage. Wechselnde Ausstellungen mal sehr mal weniger interessant. Kleine Cafeteria.
