It supports public cultural institutions, such as theatres, museums, music halls, orchestras and public libraries. Furthermore it funds projects and facilities in the performing arts, music, visual arts, literature and film just as youth culture, cross media projects and cultural exchange. The Media Office of the Ministry is responsible for the promotion of the media industry and the regulation of the media sector.
As one of Germany's largest regional museums, the Altona Museum focuses on the art and cultural history of the northern German region.

In doing so, the museum consciously opens itself to the outside world and cooperates with numerous associations and initiatives. The Altona Museum is a long-standing cooperation partner of UE Hamburg.
