This a new hat museum in Lindenberg, Germany that opened in December 2014. It's housed in the restored Ottmar Reich hat factory. Lindenberg in Allgäu was the straw hat making center of Germany and also became a felt hat making center in the early 1900s. Mayser has had operations their since the 1929 (aquired J. Milz & Cie. Straw Hat Factory) and moved all operations (from Ulm) to Lindenberg in 1991. This is a really fantastic museum that is definitely worth visiting. Here is a press release I found of the museum opening.

I will start with the Boater (Matelot) collection since Lindenberg was the straw hat making center of Germany. There are some really fantastic hats in the collection.

The peculiarity of the imperial sailor It is his bent far up brim. It is edged with a black grosgrain ribbon. The shape of the hat is always the same for years. At the request of the emperor the hatband is merely replaced, which comes in various designs and colors.
