Friends of the Dresden Porcelain Collection

The Freunde der Dresdner Porzellansammlung (Friends of the Dresden Porcelain Collection) have supported the work of the museum – its research projects, exhibitions, publications and acquisitions – in multiple ways since 1991. With great enthusiasm, the members of this society of friends share their love of Dresden’s treasures with the wider world.
All members of the Freunde der Dresdner Porzellansammlung share a fascination for the art of porcelain and its particular tradition in Dresden. Many of the members are collectors themselves, while others are lovers of the museum and its wonderful rarities. And further partners are museums and companies.

Members' Meeting 2024

Once a year, the Friends meet in Dresden to learn about the work of the porcelain collection and to consult about future projects. The annual gathering also provides the opportunity for members to see each other again or to meet for the first time and get to know each other. The general meeting is complemented by a changing programme which may include exclusive tours before exhibition openings, outings, viewings and symposia. A festive evening draws a close to the annual meeting.

This year's meeting will take place from September 6 to 8, 2024. Interested parties are also invited to take part and get to know our group of Friends.
