A PURSE MUSEUM

You'll be surprised that the collection is mostly magnificent leather (not crystal) bags with fantastic details. Housed in a European inspired structure and garden.

Although you need to schedule a visit in advance , handbags collection and Jackson Pollack art studio,can go together. Try to see both when you go to East Hampton. Always call first and coordinate.

This is a very special place. Beautiful collection of exquisite Leiber bags and bright colorful modern paintings. Learned fascinating facts about Judith and her husband from the knowledgeable curators. Great experience!

The Leiber Collections does not get a lot of publicity, but it is a wonderful museum nested in Springs near Albert's Landing. Judith Leiber's collection of handbags is remarkable and beautiful. These are true works of art. Gerson Leiber's paintings and sculpture are also of interest (paintings are abstract expressionist, sculptures are mostly busts of heads). The grounds and gardens...

All on display reveals the love between these two artists. One ,famous for the extravagant hand bags of high quality and whimsy, and the other ,of equal measure ,with an intense expression on canvas. Their joint efforts in collecting also delight.

I've been to the Lieber Collection about four times. The first time it was to see the garden as well as the Building. I was less interested in the collection of handbags. Once I began looking ,it became mesmerizing. There were purses that were designed for people the likes of Jackie O. There were two floors of displays. Later, when... More

If you have a spare hour, make sure to stop by this delightful "museum" of Judith Leiber's purses. She's delighted us for years with her whimsical takes on how purses should look in the evening. We "ooooed and ahhhhed" and each of us walked out dreaming of owning our own Judith Leiber work of art.
