Get this wonderful little catalogue about the Hutmuseum:

Thank you very much to Mr Manfred Röhrl, the director of the museum for his kindness to show me the museum on 18th of January 2012. His extensive knowledge about the history of the hat industry in Lindenberg is breath-taking. I learned a lot from him.
