Amsterdam, 2018

In the newly renovated third floor of The Museum of Bags and Purses, visitors can now find themselves in an amazing treasure trove. Stunning bags and purses dating from the 16th through the 19th centuries are accompanied by their hidden stories, the history of the bag (from a simple, useful item to an iconic fashion statement) and information about the craftsmanship it took to make them. Creative visitors can try their hand at designing their own bag.
