The Technical Meeting Open Storages at Wilanow was the best opportunity to exchange experiences, learn about other projects and share new information about the practical aspects of museum storages. Having the advantage of meeting colleagues personally allowed all the participants to strengthen some old contacts and build new ones. It was a treat to be guided to a visit at the visible storages by the team involved in the project. As a museum Professional I find these meetings very rewarding.
