At the museum, we are looking forward to the summer season. Guests from all over the world will visit us and our beautiful city, and we are more than ready to welcome them! Hopefully they will save a little space in their bags for nice souvenirs from our gift shop – it’s full of good stuff 🙂

This monday, I want to show you bags, suitcases, baskets and wallets from our collections. As you will see, there are many different ways to carry your things.
