Tomorrow, today will be yesterday!
The power of having visions partly results from knowing about and dealing with the past. Only when knowing the past, we are free to make out and follow new ways.
In this sense, visions of the past and visions for the future become clearly visible at the Zinkhütter Hof. This is also reflected in an unusuable concept: In addition to the exhibits, our museum offers well-epuipped conference rooms for any type of events. The building of our former glass factory serves as a particularly interesting meeting place for representatives of economy and business as well as culture.
