What others say about us

"I think the BikiniARTmuseum will be a big, big success. It's so surprising that no one did it up to now. You have museum from everything you could even imagine, and this is so obvious, it's so feministic, it's so political in times where people again wear burkas and things like this. It's an area with so many art pieces which are not defined - no one did it up to now - you are geniuses."

Worldwide sought-after art expert, deeply involved in Miami through museum, university & Art Basel editing

"A swimsuit or bikini is a woman's most personal piece of clothing. The world's first BikiniARTmuseum finally gives the swimwear industry as a whole the important historical dimension it deserves."

2018, voted best swimwear label in 2018

"I was happy to be involved in the concept, as the creation of a swimwear museum has been a long-awaited dream for me. The BikiniARTmuseum will exhibit the most important swimwear collection in the world - with extremely valuable historical items from all over the globe"

Ghislaine Rayer, Paris
Fashion expert, owner of one of the world's largest lingerie and swimwear collections with Patrice Gaulupeau, Author of the book "Bikini, la Légende".

"Swimwear is freedom. People who enjoy a moment of freedom. When a woman wants to buy a bikini, she thinks of the best possible, has positive vibes. You think of the beach, the sea, the sky or love."

Jacqueline de Biase
Salinas swimwear, owner

"Museum was yesterday - BikiniARTmuseum is today. Not dusty, but informative, cheeky and above all enigmatic. One learns a lot, is involved and thus entertained in the best way possible. Valuable exhibits, James Bond sends his greetings - Lifestyle and Fashion! History, stories and a future concept that stands out! A museum as a hip meeting place!"

Michael Stocks
2018, South America Correspondent of ARD

"The bikini is a measure of a woman's position in society. Where the female sex does not have the same rights, women are always prescribed how much fabric they must wear when bathing. Misconduct will be punished."

Harald Klein
German Ambassador in Guatemala and Belize, organiser of a major swimwear show for the 2014 Football World Cup in Rio de Janeiro

"Finally, there is an appreciation of swimwear as a special form of clothing. The place where the BikiniARTmuseum is located is an excellent choice because Bad Rappenau and the region have always been associated with bathing and swimwear. We are of course represented and are happy to open our archive to the imaginative, qualified development team. The BAM team has succeeded in creating a very informative museum with an international focus. We congratulate you on that."

Former managing director of the global player Triumph and present master of the treasures of the Triumph archive

"I'm thrilled. What's happening here doesn't look like a museum, it's a hip lifestyle community."
