The Archives and Museum Foundation of UEM

Since 1998, the Archives and Museum Foundation of the UEM has been responsible for the archival holdings and museum collections of the United Evangelical Mission. It is the foundation's duty to collect and protect these artefacts and to make them available for science, research, and teaching purposes. The missionaries who were sent to Africa by the Rhenish Mission beginning in 1828 sent a multitude of diverse materials to the mission house in Germany: detailed reports about places and people, documents of the native congregations originating abroad, drawings, photographs, and objects from the cultures of their overseas partners.
