As a special gesture for the ICOC delegates the Museum of Ethnography exhibited objects brought home from the orient by Sven Hedin, a well known Swedish traveller. Other interesting items were also taken out from the storage for this occasion.

Another hightlight of this evening was the visit at The National Historical Museum. This museum is the home of the Marby rug and a visit to the museum’s permanent Textile Chamber is also a must.
