Support of the local history society

Everyone can promote and support the Grafenwoehr Culture and Military Museum with their contribution.

The Cultural and Military Museum is a good example of the fact that cultural institutions can only survive and develop if people believe in them and support them. The forms of support are as diverse as the people who contribute: from small or large, one-time or regular donations to gifts and bequests.
