The Museum of Bags and Purses



The Museum of Bags and Purses: the world's foremost bag collection

The Museum of Bags and Purses takes pleasure in welcoming you on a special occasion. Our museum houses the largest and most extensive collection of handbags in the world. The collection ranges from a sixteenth-century goat-leather pouch to a handbag worn by Madonna: Situated in a magnificent canal house, a former residence of the mayor in 1664, the museum has two period rooms in which many original decorations can still be seen.

Overlooking the canal-house garden, our stylish museum café offers lunch, an elaborate afternoon tea or a nice cup of coffee or tea. The period rooms are distinctive venue social, festive or business gatherings, either during the day or in the evening. A meeting, presentation, reception, children's party or a wedding can be held on our premises.
