   Our museum has been opened! Today it contains 37 binoculars of famous Carl Zeiss brand: now you have possibility to get acquainted with them on our virtual museum pages. The exposition begins with the oldest exhibits, which are listed in the catalog in alphabetical order. At the time of their creation, those were the most advanced optical devices, but they also cost a lot...) For example, Carl Zeiss Jena Feldstecher 4 Fach binoculars cost 110 marks (the German worker average salary at that time):
