Sunday morning (church time) is not a good time for events.
I hope that the translation of Gert Goebel’s book, which includes his chapters on the Giessen Society of which he was a part, is now available in the museum shop.
Events really start at noon. The Gift shop has your suggestion Ed. Thank you!
