Original Message:   At the Museum
We toured the Museum of Glass and Jewelry as well (the archives are in a separate building). The building is an interesting mix of modern and Victorian architectures.

Nearly all of the exhibits are about glass - technology, glassware of various types, beads, jewelry - so there was not much to learn about old plastics. However, the bead necklace hung in the entrance is composed pf wood and plastic beads (to save weight). It has been entered into the Guinness book of records as the longest necklace - 220 meters. The picture is a selfie of the two of us in front of part of the necklace.
