Located in a magnificant renovated canal house, in the center of Amsterdam, this museum of bags is the place to go after you have visited the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, or other famous attractions. A beautiful location, just a few minutes walk from the Rembrandtsplein and very near to the Utrechtsestraat (shopping/dining area). It's not only the amazing collection of bags, from the 17th century until today, also the interior of the canal house is worthwhile to pay attention to. The collection changes now and then, as they have more bags in depot. Besides this core collection, they have temporarily exhibitions; currently (Feb 2014) they have 50 Barbie dolls on display, until May 2014, as well as a collection of french advertising fans, until March 2014. The cafe is in style; you can have your high tea here. There is also a museum shop. All in all, really worthwhile a visit. The museum is not that big, expect to spend around 90 minutes, of course depending on your pace.
