Museum Of Bags And Purses Overview

If you thought museums were boring, you have a new think coming! The Museum of Bags and Purses is, as the name suggests, is dedicated to the history of bags, purses, and other accessories. Home to over 5,000 pieces that date as far back as the 16th century, the museum sits inside a mayoral house over the Amsterdam canal.

From the most popular to the most unique kinds of bags, the museum has everything - bridal purses, coin purses, evening bags, satchels - you name it.
