Description

British newspaper The Guardian recognized this museum as one of "The 10 Best Museums In Europe That You've Probably Never Heard Of." Take a look inside The Museum of Bags and Purses, the largest of its kind in the world.

The Museum of Bags and Purses is more than some old lady's leftover accessories in a closet full of mothballs. It's a fascinating collection that will show and tell you the story of a seemingly everyday article, covering fashion, art, Dutch customs and a decent slice of history. One of Madonna's own Versace handbags is even living out its days here, remembering her lovely touch.

The museum is situated in a lovely canal house in the center of Amsterdam, and it's in this intimate setting that you can devour the development of bags and purses from the Middle Ages, right through to the present day. This is the only place in the world where you will find so many beautiful, valuable, playful and exciting handbags in one collection, from 15th century historical highlights, to the timeless classics of modern design from the planet's most famous designers.

Royal Bags - from 8 October 2016 to 26 February 2017

Fashion styles weren’t always set by Hollywood stars and runway models. This fascinating exhibition shows how trends were set by sovereigns - and strictly followed by aristocratic ladies and social climbers. See fabulous accessories used by Princess Grace, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, and even Empress Sisi.
