The Genevriére umbrella workshop, formerly located in Koblenz, opened in our museum in August 2020. It shows the workshop of Elmar Genevrière one of the last umbrella-making workshops of a now extinct craft.

The exhibition not only contains umbrellas at the various stages of the manufacturing process, but also all the tools used to make them.
