The 200 Jahre Geschichte Homosexuell ("200 years of Gay History") traces the rise of homosexual culture in Europe from 1800 to the present day. Using art, case studies, personal biographies, advertising materials, documents, and other ephemera, this exhibition weaves a tale of hard-won (and often still-contentious) understanding and acceptance. See museum website for visitor info and more.
