“Great cafe at this museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

The collection of bags and purses was OK but the highlight of our visit here was a stop-off at the cafe. Very comfortable, and it looked like the afternoon tea was delicious!

“Super fun and quirky museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

I loved this little gem! It was so fun to see all the old bags and purses and being a fan-collector, I was very pleased to see a few old fans as well. Well worth the entry price and it's right in the city centre, so if you are on a busy sightseeing schedule, you can make a quick visit.

Thanks for a lovely visit :)

“Quick and quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

A very fun museum to do when you just arrive in Amsterdam and are jet lagged but do not want to nap. We took our three girls there right after we arrived from the US ( east coast) and we really enjoyed it and it helped to pass the time. It is a visual museum with lots of color, sparkle and texture. It is located in an old building and it was an adventure just going through the house.
