Canal house

One of the nicest museums I like to visit it this "Museum of Bags and Purces" , or the "Tassenmuseum" as we call it in dutch, in Amsterdam. It is housed in a beautiful canalhouse from 1666.

This exhibition special attracted my attentention.

In the basement  this futuristic bag was placed in the window.

The inside looks beautiful a lounge where you can have a cosy seat after walking through the museum.

A little corridor.

The tearoom.

And a glass window in the staircase.

The residents who lived here until it became a museum in 2007.
Another time I'll show you some purses.
Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

  1. Alleen al het gebouw maakt het de moeite waard om naar binnen te gaan.

  2. This building is so wonderful both inside and outside.

  3. What a beautiful old building. The bags must have been interesting too. Hope you show us some.

  4. Yes, I would like to see some purses that qualify for a museum!

  5. It's a beautiful museum, looking forward to seeing thebags and purses 😊
    I didn't manage to see your King and Queen Marianne, I missed them yesterday at Elizabeth Quay, apparently it was such a lovely people meeting event and today I hoped to catch them as they left Government House on their way to Ascot to watch the race, but again I was too late. But you'll be pleased to hear that the weather was wonderful for them and I believe they really enjoyed their stay. I did see them on TV, such a good looking couple.

  6. That glass window is quite a sight, Marianne!

  7. Interesting idea for a museum! We have a shoe museum here and it is quite nice to tour through it.

  8. Like your header, b., especially the bike. :-)

  9. I am always amazed at the number of museums in Amsterdam......and I would love having tea in that tearoom.

  10. This is very beautiful and the tearoom lovely, I especially like the lounge where you can sit. That looks cozy.
