2. The Museum of Bags and Purses, Amsterdam
This museum claims to have the “world’s largest bag collection”: 4,000 bags, spanning 500 years of Western history. Among the museum’s highlights is the Normandie leather clutch, a wallet that was given to first-class passengers on the Normandie’s maiden voyage.
Admission is free if you have the iAmsterdam city pass, the Museumcard, or the HollandPass; otherwise, general admission for adults is €8.50.
Fancy making your own bag? Stick around for a DIY class at the museum or book a bag-making party, which will be led by a museum staff member.
