The admission to the Museum Folkwang permanent collection is free. This also applies to all collection displays and exhibitions presented by the Museum’s Departments of Photography and of Prints and Drawings, as well as the German Poster Museum. The admission-fee waiver has been made possible thanks to the support of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung. The initiative is designed to make visiting the museum easier, especially for children, young people, and families and aims to give everyone the opportunity to drop in and visit the collection regularly.

Each month, starting in April until May 2016, the museum screens video works and films by important contemporary artists such as Hans Op de Beeck, William Kentridge, and Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler. The films take the viewer to places that lie beyond the screen. The result is a twelve-month journey through inner-city spaces, interiors, and the realm of the uncanny.
