Re: THE OFFICIAL 2017 INS COLOGNE CONVENTION/SYMPOSIUM THREAD

I've started planning for Cologne and a few extra days ... A couple of stops under consideration are the BASF Lacquer Museum in Münster and the Baur Collection in Geneva ... Does anyone have experiences that they can share from visits to these institutions? ...

Thanks ...
